Please join Measured Response guest curator Emily McDaniel and exhibiting artists Tamara Baillie, Penny Evans and Lucy Simpson speak about the exhibition.
Measured Response brings together contemporary Aboriginal perspectives that engage with bodily and spiritual practices of art-making. Artists often use themselves as a point of reference for measurement and creation: a weaver uses an arm’s reach to measure lengths of string, a ceramicist choreographs their hands to create form, and hand-blown glass needs the artist’s breath to take shape. Measured Response demonstrates how our relationship to the world is calibrated through our bodily dimensions.
