Meet the artist and poet behind mira, a collaboration in word and stitch

Join poet John Glenday and artist Maria Isakova-Bennett to learn more about their collaborative response to Mira Schendel, a Brazilian modernist artist. Schendel worked across media and is perhaps best known for her drawings on rice paper, which interwove word and image, making use of a number of languages. John and Maria respond to Schendel's work with poetry and stitch artwork in a stunning and tactile piece on display on Level 2 of the Byre.
