Summary

"Theatre of the World creates a dialogue between works of art and objects from many different origins, both historical and geographical. It takes a deliberately contemporary look at ancient works and asks why they are still so fascinating to us... As the backbone of the exhibition and this accompanying volume, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's Pacific barkcloth collection is shown together with contemporary art from Mona, presenting an alternative modernity"--Back cover.
