Linda Brescia: Holding up the Sky

24 November 2018 - 16 February 2019

Fairfield City Museum and Gallery’s 2017/18 Artist in Residence, Linda Brescia showcases stocking portraits and fabric paintings which are a metaphor for the different personas imposed on women by society. The collection’s hero piece, which the exhibition is aptly named after, is a giant installation made up of 681 meticulously woven domestic cleaning cloths suspended from the ceiling.
