    Sarah Contos is in the exhibition 'Connecting Thread', opening tomorrow at the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery, Abbotsleigh High School.

    Curator Lizzy Marshall says of the exhibition:
    "A structured thread is formed from ideas. Moreover, artworks within 'Connected Thread' are not inert twine nor objects from centuries of tradition. These artworks are a weaving of the conceptual and the material. Each artwork is an invisible performative action by the artist interweaving the political, cultural, autobiographical into an intractable understanding of the contemporary present through the audience experience."

    Opening event: Saturday 27 July, 2–4pm
    The exhibition will run until 22 August.
