GLASS is a new medium for artist Tony Albert, who regularly works with collage, painting, found materials and photography to explore Australia’s contentious history and fraught race relations. During a residency at Canberra Glassworks last year he produced stained-glass windows, sand-etched glass text works and glass casts of “Aboriginalia” (domestic and tourist artefacts that include images of Aboriginal people, their cultural objects and designs). His exhibition “Duty of Care” is open at Canberra Glassworks, Wentworth Ave, Kingston, Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-4pm until September 27.
