OBJECT LESSONS III: Pattern Recognition

3 October - 5 December 2015

OBJECT LESSONS III: Pattern Recognition is the final chapter in a year-long, three-part exhibition of contemporary art from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art.

Pattern Recognition showcases a broad selection of ways in which Australian women artists have utilised pattern either as a surface treatment or as a sequence. Pattern is revealed to be simultaneously sensuous, structural and laden with cultural significance.
