Exchange Series for Schools: string theory curator talk

Join MCA Curator Glenn Barkley on a journey across Australia as he reflects on the process of curating string theory, an exhibition by Aboriginal artists who work with expanded notions of textile and craft-based traditions.

From the fibre pieces of the Ramingining community, to the lively creations to the Noongar Doll Makers, discover the practice of Aboriginal artists exploring innovative approaches to fibre in a contemporary context.
