The Stories and Structures – New Connections Art Exhibition was launched at Sydney’s Power House Museum by Microscopy Australia in June 2018.
The inspiration for the exhibition emerged through the work of Sydney microscopy scientists who engaged 21 indigenous artists from various regions across Australia to create artworks that connect with images from electron microscopes.
