Soft Core

3 February 2017 – 12 March 2017

This exhibition presents artistic practices that explore the many facets of ‘softness’ – from large-scale inflatables to forms made from soft materials or materials that simply look soft. It investigates these practices by presenting existing works and newly commissioned works by 12 Australian and international artists who question the fluctuating meaning of what it means to be soft. The installation includes works by Mikala Dwyer (AU), Michael Parekowhai (NZ), Patricia Piccinini (AU), Koji Ryui (AU/JPN), Kathy Temin (AU) and Louise Weaver (AU).

An exhibition curated by Micheal Do, in conjunction with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and toured by Museums and Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
