The inaugural edition of a new exhibition series, Artists’ Proof #1 explores current positions in contemporary art through new commissions by nine outstanding contemporary artists.

Artists' Proof has been established to provide curatorial support for contemporary artists to develop new work and ambitious projects. The series supports innovative, experimental and research-based practices, by artists whose work is especially interesting or exemplifies new tendencies and modes of practice. Artists' Proof provides an opportunity for participating artists to develop and test nwe work, and for MUMA audiences to experience a diverse range of artistic positions.

Presented through all of MUMA's recently designed galleries, the inaugural exhibition sees artists explore performative, media and event cultures, and the post-industrial architecture of the urban fringe, whilst others work with sound, light, sculpture, film, and painting in its diverse and expanded forms, offering a multi-sensory register of art and everyday life, from complex cultural perspectives.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
