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.
