An exhibition documenting how politicians, businessmen and public servants secretly carved up the inner-city road network in a calculated bid to force drivers into a private toll tunnel. The exhibition is about the venality of selling off public roads, wilfully restricting public transport, folly and lies and the howls of anger from gridlocked traffic. It’s a fast ride through public-private partnerships Sydney style.
Conceptual Crochet answers the curious question: Why are so many contemporary artists interested in craft techniques? The artists in the exhibition are trained in the Conceptual Art tradition. Their work, however, harnesses critical forces as well as the heightened levels of aesthetic and formal innovation often found in crafts such as knitting, quilting and crochet.
