Close Ties

30 September  30 October 1999

Kay Lawrence and Marcel Marois

An exhibition of woven tapestry art works by South Australian artist Kay Lawrence and Canadian artist Marcel Marois. Links can be drawn between the work of these two artists, who each use traditional tapestry techniques to explore relationships between tapestry and the critical issues informing art practices other than tapestry. Lawrence's works, however, are concerned with feminism, representation and identity, whilst Marois' works express the fragility of various ecological and cultural identities.

Curated by Ruth McDougall, Queensland University Art Museum. Ruth is a graduate of the South Australian School of Art and recipient, in 1993, of an inaugural Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship
