230pm - Artist talk with Diana Baker Smith, moderated by Verónica TelloUTS Gallery. (Building 6, Level 4, 702 Harris St, Ultimo) 

She Speaks in Sculpture is an exhibition by Diana Baker Smith exploring the histories of Sydney’s built environment through the work of Australian-American sculptor Margel Hinder (1906-1995). The project maps the extraordinary journey of Hinder’s sculpture Growth Forms, held in the UTS Art Collection, through a series of new works that explore the tension between public art and urban development in Sydney.

The exhibition includes a new video installation developed with cinematographer Gotaro Uematsu, choreographer Brooke Stamp, dancer Ivey Wawn, costume designer Leah Giblin, and musician Bree van Reyk, as well as a display of archival material related to Hinder’s work, supported through loans from the Art Gallery of NSW.

This project has been supported by the City of Sydney’s Cultural and Creative Grants.
