Hung Out To Dry

 

University of Queensland Art Museum
Brisbane 
21 March - 10 May  2015


Hung out to dry is more than an homage to the backyard rotary hoist. It is a playful, provocative and contemplative exploration of the quotidian routine of laundry. Part oral history project, part artistic response, this exhibition reveals the significance of clothesline aesthetics, gendered labour and environmental sustainability, as embodied in the air-drying of washing. Artists include Chris Bennie, Bill Henson, Mari Hirata, Adrienne Kneebone, Tracey Moffatt, Georgie Roxby Smith and Arryn Snowball, alongside historical works from The University of Queensland Art Collection. The project is presented in collaboration with The University of Queensland’s Research Centre for Architecture Theory Criticism History (ATCH), in the School of Architecture.
