Greg Leong: Singing History Quilts For New Chinese Australians

22 June – 14 July, 2001

Singing History Quilts For New Chinese Australians is an exhibition by Greg Leong which explores the celebrations of the Centenary of Federation through textiles and karaoke. In this series, richly decorated quilts sing Australiana classics that have been translated into Cantonese. These intricately designed quilts combine iconic Australian paintings with references to traditional Chinese textiles to explore an alternative perspective on the recent celebrations.
