Art Speak: “Taking it All Away”

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Sydney: “Taking it All Away”, 2014.

MCA feb 15 rose nolan

In the current exhibition “Taking it all away” contemporary visual artists explore our relationship between self and time. How do we perceive our place in this moment or the next? does time flow effortlessly from one minute to the next as minutes become hours and hours fade into the dusk of another days end?

The selection of work highlights the current minimalist and conceptual trends in post-modernist art. Materials are chosen and placed seemingly haphazardly across the gallery floors and walls like obstacles forcing you to take a detour and to question your place in time and in relation to the abstracted forms. The exhibition showcases the works of Christian Capurro, Peter Cripps, Gail Hastings, Robert Hunter, Rose Nolan, Stuart Ringholl and Gordon Bennett.

MCA Gallery is open Mon to Thurs: 1pm / Sat to Sun: 11am

Free guided tours are available.MCA feb 15
