QAG | Gallery 4 | Free
From kitsch souvenirs to once popular children's books and toys, what place do racist objects have in today's society? Hear from visual artist Carol McGregor as she confronts, reconciles and reinterprets objects from Australia's past.
Carol McGregor is of Wathaurung (Victoria) and Scottish descent. She works across multi-media disciplines with materials including ephemeral natural fibres, metal, and paper. Her recent art practice revives the traditional possum skin cloak as an art form and a way to strengthen community and individual identities.
