Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza & Warraba Weatherall with Olivia Fairweather
12 February 2022
In this podcast, the co-curators of This language that is every stone speak with the editor of the exhibition’s 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.
