Artist Interview: Talia Smith

Portrait of artist Talia Smith
Murray Art Museum Albury

Talia Smith guides the audience through her first instititional exhibition at Murray Art Museum Albury and gives insights into her art practice.

Don’t be bashful, wear the flower behind your ear explores the ebb and flow of how one connects to their culture and the ties that bind by situating her lived experience of the Pacific or Moana diaspora within the Samoan concept of the va – the space between, a space in which separate times, relationships, things, and entities are held outside of Westernised constructs.

Within this exhibition there is no final answer but rather many possibilities, future imaginings, and an acknowledgement that culture is never one defined thing.
