Saturday 20 September 10am
Floor Talk with Dale Harding at Caboolture Regional Art Gallery
Brisbane based artist and QCA Tutor, Dale Harding will discuss his works in the exhibition, String Theory which are grounded in the first-hand accounts of his Elders’ lived experiences on Woorabinda during mission control. Found objects, fibre and textile are essential to representing his families’ stories of forced domestic service. A key component of string theory is people. People talking and people making. In Dale Harding’s work, ideas and objects grow out of conversations with the artist’s grandmother and mother, slowly evolving into artworks that tell the hard truths of Australian history.
