Singles Valentines Workshop with Carla Adams

In real life and through the apps that frame our attention and desires, we continually and intuitively scan the faces we encounter for clues.

Based on Carla Adams’ works in the exhibition sorry I was/am too much and using her sophisticated visual language, this workshop offers a chance to tune into how we interpret the details of the human body.

Make a face with the eyes of someone you’d love to love, or love to hate, with the nose of someone a friend might like, and the mouth of somebody you’d avoid at all costs.

1000 Tinder Opening Lines by Carla Adams will be on sale and the artist available to sign copies.

COST: $65 (Inclusive of drinks and snacks)


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.
