event date: 
Sunday, 25 February 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

WAG invites you to join artist Carly Fischer for a floor talk as a part of her exhibition 'From Little Things Big Things Grow'


Carly Fischer's sculptural and audio installations explore some of the complexities and contradictions involved in contemporary notions of place and cultural identity. Through collecting objects, stories, stereotypes and mythologies, her installations weave found and fabricated fragments into alternate narratives. In this floor talk, Carly will reflect on the process behind her recent work.
