Sorry I was/am too much | Carla Adams and Albert Tucker

12 December 2020 – 15 March 2021 Perth Cultural Centre, AGWA - Art Gallery Of Western Australia

Sorry I was/am too much pairs works by Western Australian contemporary artist Carla Adams and one of Australia’s foremost modernist artists, Albert Tucker. The show includes Adams’ paintings, textiles, ceramics and mixed-media objects, drawings and visual diaries that emerge from her experiences in the contemporary dating world. This is juxtaposed against a selection of Tucker’s drawings and paintings from the Gallery’s Collection, produced between 1943 and 1989. A surprising pairing at first glance, both artists are intimately connected in their use of highly-personalised and charged versions of expressionism as the vehicle for their struggle with feeling connections and misconnections between people; the blurring of the private and public self; carnal and romantic desires and their constant frustration; and gender roles.\

This is a free event  - 10am-5pm, Wednesday - Monday, closed Tuesday and Christmas Day
