String theory exhibition opens soon

string theory: Focus on contemporary Australian art is soon to open at the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT.

The exhibition, developed by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, explores innovative approaches to fibre and art in a contemporary context and brings together Aboriginal artists who work with expanded notions of textile and craft-based tradition.

Presented in the exhibition will be a range of artworks from sculpture to photography, painting to video created by over 30 artists and artist groups from all over Australia.

The exhibition opens on Saturday 8th March with a free public floor talk by Glenn Barkley, Senior Curator MCA, at 11am.
