Open Spatial Workshop: Converging in time
MUMA presents Open Spatial Workshop: Converging in time, the first major museum exhibition by Open Spatial Workshop (comprising artists Terri Bird, Bianca Hester and Scott Mitchell). Curated by Charlotte Day.
The exhibition continues OSW’s exploration of the material relationships between sculpture and geology. Drawing on earth sciences research and studies of the Anthropocene, this new exhibition explores the connections between the mineral make-up of a site and the societies that are produced and sustained by it. In MUMA’s galleries OSW will bring together new sculptural, video and sound works in assemblages with extended support structures that incorporate items from Museums Victoria’s Geosciences collection.
The exhibition continues MUMA’s much anticipated annual exhibition series that presents the practices of Australia’s most exciting and innovative mid-career artists. MUMA will publish the first monograph on OSW, which will feature three newly-commissioned essays including a passage by Matt Poll, Curator of Indigenous Heritage and Repatriation Project at Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney; and selected texts authored by Open Spatial Workshop.
