A Centre for Everything present a new project that reflects on the ways in which the fossil fuel industry ingratiates itself to the Australian public. The project adopts A Centre for Everything’s signature triadic formation, bringing together the topics of Ice Coal, Data Networks and Collectiveactivity to converge in generative and revealing ways.

Throughout the exhibition opening and making a special appearance during Monash O Week, A Centre for Everything will be serving up free coal-flavoured ice cream from their Gina Rinehart-inspired art work.

A Centre for Everything is an independent creative and pedagogical project that engages individuals and communities to learn, create, discuss and eat together founded by artists Will Foster and Gabrielle de Vietri. Their collaborative events bring together diverse topics through performances, presentations, workshops, readings, discussions, demonstrations, critiques and meals. Recurring themes include active responses to current political issues, game-play and its application to wider modes of social behaviour, collective creativity, and the intersection of artistic, social and pedagogical thinking.

A Centre for Everything is participating in Shapes of Knowledge at Monash University Museum of Art, 9 February – 13 April 2018.
