Carried Away: Bags Unpacked had been published to accompany a previous exhibition at Auckland Museum. In this book, author Grace Lai looks to challenge the assumptions of bags and uncover their symbolism and power in history and contemporary society.

 

Handbags, plastic bags, backpacks, chatelaines, kete, briefcases, inrō, miser's purses, basikete and pohā - these everyday objects reflect diverse uses of bags across cultures.

Carried Away: Bags Unpacked, published by Allen and Unwin, has been created to accompany the exhibition. In the introductory essay, Applied Arts and Design Curator Grace Lai looks to challenge the assumptions of bags and uncover their symbolism and power in history and contemporary society.

Grace Lai says “The bag reveals as much as it conceals. The intention behind both the exhibition and the book is to unpack the values and meanings assigned to bags by individuals and society, past and present, that remain relevant not only to museums and their collections, but to society today."
