Time Out says

While not so much a gallery and more of an archive, the Women’s Art Register works with women (including non-binary and trans women) as a community resource for women’s art in Australia, largely maintained with the assistance of artists, writers and curators.

Beginning in 1975 at the Ewing and George Paton galleries at the University of Melbourne, there are now more than 3,000 artist folders held in the archive, which is accessible at the Richmond Library. These include artworks (duplicates), catalogues, posters, books and newspaper clippings about women in arts practice in Australia, on a broad range of practices including new media, ceramics, textiles, performance, sculpture and more.

The resource also sometimes hold public events across Melbourne. Keep an eye out on their events page for upcoming events.
