Future Eaters presents a range of Australian and international artists working with sculptural practices in the technological age. It begins with a series of questions: How does the sculpture made today reflect the technological age in which we live and work? How have the materials and forms  of  sculpture evolved and shifted? And to what ends?

Sculpture is of our time but we can also envisage sculpture outliving us and its forms becoming speculative residues of our past. This group exhibition is constructed with the future viewer in mind: the sculptures laid out like  the recovery  from  an archaeological dig set up for close examination and analysis.
