Auburn to host exhibition against violence towards women

March 1, 2013
Photo exhibition "The Stain".

“The Stain” is the name of a photo exhibition by Turkish artist A. Suderin Murat, which looks at the issue of violence against women.

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, the exhibition will be open to the public from March 4-10 at the Auburn Town Hall Exhibition Gallery.

For many years, Murat has campaigned against all kinds of discrimination. She considers art to be “the most effective and peaceful tool” for helping society.

She was part of the “Stop Domestic Violence” project (2005-2008), which was kicked off by 11 women photographers and organised in conjunction with the United Nations Population Fund.

The project involved over 450 women photographers. Murat received an award for her work on this project in 2007.

[The exhibition will be open Monday-Wednesday and Saturday from 9am-9pm, Thursday 9am-4pm, Friday 4pm-9pm and Sunday 9am-3pm. The Auburn Town Hall Exhibition Gallery is located at 1 Susan Street Auburn.]
