In this podcast, the curators of This Language that Is Every Stone speak with the editor of their forthcoming publication Olivia Fairweather about the development of the show, the postcolonial theories of Martinican philosopher Édouard Glissant, and what his work might mean in an Australian context. This podcast is a behind-the-scenes insight into the dynamic interaction of theory and art objects in curatorial practice.

About the exhibition
Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, and Kamilaroi artist Warraba Weatherall, This Language that Is Every Stone is the fourth iteration in a series of exhibitions conceived by Obrist and Raza that survey Glissant’s life and work. Developed specifically within an Australian context, This Language that Is Every Stone explores cultural synthesis and permeability through the works of Australian First Nations and diasporic artists, with contributions from international counterparts.

Talk

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
