The exhibition entitled More love hours is a review of contemporary Australian artists using craft media, techniques or processes in their practice.

More love hours brings together selected works by thirteen contemporary Australian artists who use craft media, techniques or processes in their practice. The exhibition demonstrates how artists use ‘traditional’ forms of creativity—ceramics, embroidery, weaving, paper-craft—to express contemporary values and complex ideologies.

Along with Stephen Bird the exhibition features works by Fiona Cabassi, Dana Harris, Newell Harry, Rhys Lee, Raquel Ormella, Julia Robinson, Vipoo Srivilasa, Hiromi Tango, Anton Veenstra, and Yarrenyty Arltere artists Dulcie Sharpe, Louise Robertson and Rhonda Sharpe.
