A fresh batch of street art has popped up across Brisbane, brightening up the city's laneways and public spaces. And it's not any old outdoor exhibition, with Women's Work highlighting large-scale pieces by 12 female artists.

On display until Sunday, December 1, this is a huge showcase in several ways. Each of the towering artworks earns that description, as does the the exhibition's sprawling inner-city footprint — spreading over Eagle, Edison, Irish, Hutton and Fish Lanes, as well as along Edward Street, through the King George Square Car Park and on the William Jolly Bridge. And, there's also the fact that it's Brisbane's largest display of women's street art.

The idea behind the exhibition is hefty, too — tackling gender equality in the industry, showcasing the efforts of more than just the usual suspects and shining a spotlight on ace ladies.

Courtney Brims, Claire Tracey, Dominique Falla, Emma Wright, Lusid Art and Mosessa rank among the artists, designers and practitioners involved, as do Nicola Holly, Rachael Sarra, Rae Cooper, Sarah Hazlehurst, Tori-Jay Mordey and Zoe Porter.

Women's Work is the work of The Culprit Club, in collaboration with BAM - Brisbane Art Matriarchs, Brisbane City Council, and Griffith University's Queensland College of Art.

Over the course of its run, the exhibition will also include curated walking tours, talks and events.
