This language that is every stone: Édouard Glissant and the Australian archipelago
This language that is every stone: Édouard Glissant and the Australian archipelago accompanies the fourth of a series of exhibitions initiated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Asad Raza, now joined by Warraba Weatherall, relating to the work and thought of Édouard Glissant. Glissant’s images and ideas—developed in Martinique, Mississippi, Paris, and New York—here resonate with the practices of First Nations and diasporic artists in Brisbane and the Australian archipelago. Glissant’s imperative is to contribute to a new world mentality across oceans and islands.
