Description

SAM is pleased to present I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella, an exhibition reflecting on the intersections of art and activism.

Join Raquel Ormella before the launch of her survey show I hope you get this for a floor talk in which she discusses environmentalism, birdwatching and national identity.

Raquel Ormella employs a wide variety of media, including video, painting, installation, drawing, textile, paintings and zine production. I hope you get this features some of her seminal early works, alongside more recent textile and text-based works, and new commissions. The exhibition reveals Ormella’s experimental relationship with textiles and a playful exploration of semiotics, critical hallmarks of her sustained practice. I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella, will be the artist’s first major survey exhibition.

Through her use of text and symbols, notably in her intricate embroidery work, Ormella invites audience members to engage with issues of nationalism, political activism and environmental intervention.

I hope you get this will be exhibited at SAM from 26 May to 12 August 2018.

A NETS Victoria and Shepparton Art Museum touring exhibition, curated by Rebecca Coates and Anna Briers.
