A Centre for Everything will discuss their project for Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA)’s international group exhibition Shapes of Knowledge (9 February – 13 April 2019) in relation to global shifts in art and activism that have influenced their work. Maps of Gratitude, Cones of Silence and Lumps of Coal explores how 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 Collective Activity to converge in generative and revealing ways.
Founded by artists Will Foster and Gabrielle de Vietri, A Centre for Everything is an independent creative and pedagogical project that engages individuals and communities to learn, create, discuss and eat together. 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.
