The Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) is currently running an exhibition of Californian design—it includes the first Barbie doll, classic Levi 501 jeans, and furniture by Charles and Ray Eames. Our panel looks at the influence Californian design has on Australian culture, and looks at how Australian design is now influencing California.
