Art Almanac - - WHAT'S ON -

Re-ori­ent­ing the lan­guage of tex­tiles is a sub­ver­sive act in it­self. In ‘Can’t Touch This’ ten Aus­tralian con­tem­po­rary artists go a step fur­ther by ush­er­ing in a range of so­cial and po­lit­i­cal con­cerns to the tra­di­tional medium such as land rights, con­structs of gen­der iden­tity and In­ter­net dat­ing eti­quette. Miriam Kelly has cu­rated works from Carla Adams, Troy-An­thony Baylis, Chris­tine Dean, Chan­tal Fraser, Kate Just, Mumu Mike Wil­liams, Clau­dia Ni­chol­son, Raquel Ormella, Mar­lene Rubun­tja and Paul Yore.
