Deborah Kelly and Chantelle Woods
Sydney-based artist Deborah Kelly creates mixed-media artworks that are at once unexpected, humorous, provocative and profound. Often politically motivated and collectively realised, her artworks explore ideas of power in all its manifestations. This evening she speaks with Chantelle Woods, Aboriginal Curatorial Fellow at the Biennale of Sydney, who helped realise Deborah’s project for the exhibition. Join them and some of the other project participants in a discussion of Deborah’s on-going large-scale collective collages, In All Our Glory.
