This exhibition showcases a selection from Joan Ross’ extensive repertoire including drawing, sculpture and video. Her works are both satirical and disarming while addressing serious issues including ownership, surveillance, fear and boundaries. Her trademark use of fluro is intentionally prevalent as are her Kangaroo fur fashion items. Ross’ aesthetic is visually pleasing and yet confronting, reminding us of our colonial history and the ongoing repercussions of that history.

A Blue Mountains Cultural Centre exhibition curated by Rilka Oakley.

About Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
Opened 17 November 2012, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre features the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery and World Heritage Exhibition which is devoted to education about the distinctive environment, history and culture of the Blue Mountains region. The Cultural Centre is co-located with the new Katoomba Library.

The Cultural Centre showcases innovative, diverse, distinctive and creative cultural programs for enjoyment by residents of, and visitors to, the Blue Mountains.

Built on the highest point in Katoomba with panoramic views of the World Heritage area, it links the main shopping precinct on Katoomba Street through enhanced pedestrian connections.

Being the first publicly owned and managed, purpose designed facility of the arts to be constructed in the Blue Mountains, it is expected that the development will significantly contribute to the improvement of the economic health and cultural vitality of the Blue Mountains and the surrounding regions.
