Can’t Touch This brings together the work of ten contemporary Australian artists who articulately and subversively re-orient the language of textiles to address concerns of identity, gender and sexuality to colonisation and cultural constructs and power in contemporary Australia.

This exhibition includes artists: Carla Adams (WA), Troy-Anthony Baylis (SA), Christine Dean (NSW), Chantal Fraser (QLD), Kate Just (VIC), Mumu Mike Williams (APY/SA), Claudia Nicholson (NSW), Raquel Ormella (ACT/NSW), Marlene Rubuntja (NT), and Paul Yore (VIC). Curated by Miriam Kelly.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
