Campbelltown Arts Centre in association with Sydney WorldPride presents ‘Embracing Shadows’, a survey exhibition by Lismore-based Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens.

Spanning 30 years of practice ‘Embracing Shadows’ will focus on themes of female identity and racial injustice that are enduringly explored in Dickens’s reflections on Australian culture. The exhibition will bring together key bodies of work for the first time, including ‘Hot Thing’ (1995) ‘Sheila’s Downunder’ (2002) ‘Black Madonna’ (2009) ‘Workhorse’(2015) and ‘Bound’ (2016), as well as select works from the ‘Dickensian Circus’ and ‘Country Show’ series (2020-2021).

‘Embracing Shadows’ will also premiere ‘Disastrous’, a series created following the record-breaking floods that devastated Dickens’ home region of the Northern Rivers in early 2022.
