Current exhibition

domestic bliss

extended opening to 19 July 2014

Featuring the work of Katherine Hattam, Elizabeth Gower, David Ray, Yvonne Kendall, Hannah Bertram, Donna Marcus, Honor Freeman, Lucas Grogan and others, this exhibition explores the way artists have responded to the notion of the domestic space and traditional domestic roles. Through an often playful materiality, these artists have reinterpreted the all-familiar, private spaces we inhabit and the objects that we share them with and ask, what do we garner from noticing, subverting or even celebrating the everyday? Includes works drawn from the Deakin University Art Collection, private collections and newly commissioned works.

Curator: Emma Cox, Deakin University
