Work by Betty Muffler is presented in ‘Like a Wheel That Turns: The 2022 Macfarlane Commissions’ at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Established in 2017, this year marks the third edition of this multi-year partnership to commission and support new projects by contemporary emerging – mid-career artists. Betty Muffler is among 7 other artists working in the realm of painting, who have been selected to create new work.
