10 February – 10 March 2001.
Curator: Melissa Chiu
Artists: Gaye Chan and Karen Coull
Soft Touch is an exhibition which brings together two lesbian artists – Gaye Chan and Karen Coull – from different cultural perspectives.
Both artists address in different ways issues relating to the representation of women from a lesbian perspective. Chan’s interest in migration and her place within Hawaiian society offers alternative multicultural considerations to debate while Karen Coull’s work deconstructs Australian vernacular readings of femininity.
Soft Touch is part of the 2001 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival.
