Hannah Presley: Curator interview A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness

Hannah Presley, the curator of ACCA’s exhibition A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness, speaks about the meaning of this exhibition and the commissioning process, working with artists to develop new works. ‘A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness’ celebrates the significance of family, community and humour in contemporary Aboriginal life. This major exhibition features 10 new commissions by artists from south-east Australia and beyond, in an exploration of everyday life and experiences of Aboriginal people today. Country music icons, queer identity, pop-culture and community leadership are referenced, as well as the legacy of ancestors and the importance of coming together to strengthen identity and connection.
