‘Air’ showcases immersive and large-scale works by leading international and Australian artists exploring the cultural, ecological and political dimensions of air.
Presented across the entire ground floor of GOMA, ‘Air’ features Collection favourites including Ron Mueck’s monumental human sculpture In bed, Anthony McCall’s solid-light installation Crossing and Jonathan Jones’ lyrical evocation of wind, breath and bird call, untitled (giran).
Tomás Saraceno’s floating work Drift: A cosmic web of thermodynamic rhythms anchors the exhibition with a sequence of 13 large suspended spheres, partly mirrored and partly transparent, with some remaining still and others in subtle vertical motion.
The exhibition will be a journey through this invisible, ethereal and vital element, reflecting on awareness of our shared atmosphere as life-giving, potentially dangerous and rapidly warming.
Single tickets now on sale, Season Tickets on sale late October.
