Abakanowicz in Australia

Australia, 1976 (MIFF 1977)

Director: Chris McGill

For Polish artist, Magdalena Abakanowicz, the act of creation does not stop with the completion of an individual work—it continues on into the exhibition stage. In the film, we see the artist arranging an exhibition in Sydney, and also, working with students in a workshop.
