I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella

This exhibition brings together a selection of new and recent work by one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Raquel Ormella.

When: Sat, 26 May – Sun, 12 Aug 2018
Where: Shepparton Art Museum, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton

The survey exhibition will include work from a wide variety of media, and particularly draw on her experimental textile works. The exhibition explores key themes that Ormella has consistently developed in her work: social and environmental activism; human and animal relationships; nationalism and national identity.

These recurrent interests are brought together by a consistent engagement with the artist’s voice. Rather than being the site of authority, Ormella’s voice simultaneously expresses an aspiration for connection, while remaining uncertain about whether the communication will work.

A NETS Victoria and Shepparton Art Museum touring exhibition, curated by Rebecca Coates and Anna Briers.
