Carla Adams (b.1984, Perth) is an early career West Australian artist working with paint and textiles. After graduating with an advanced diploma in contemporary art from Central TAFE in 2012, Adams went on to receive first class honours from Curtin University in 2014.
Adams has exhibited at Free Range Gallery, MOANA, Bus Projects (Melb), FELTSpace (Adelaide), ARTBAR at The Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney) and her work was selected for the 2013 Hatched national graduate exhibition at PICA. In 2017 she will exhibit at Turner Gallery, University of Sydney, Gertrude Street Projection Festival and Blindside (Melbourne). Adams is a sessional academic at Curtin University and is director of Smart Casual gallery.
My work is aligned with feminist sculptural and textile practices and investigates how women navigate digital dating platforms. My practice is concerned with personal and intimate internet encounters rather than mass attended online spaces.
