Off Grid
- curated by Al Munro, 2017

26 April to 13 May

As the exemplar of high Modernism, the grid is ubiquitous within contemporary life in instances as varied as the structure of city buildings and streets, to the graphs of financial indexes and the organisational logic of museums, libraries and supermarkets. But just as the grid can be seen as a device implying control and rigidity, it can also been seen as an agent of movement and change.

The artists - Emma Beer, Sally Blake, Julie Brooke, Kirsten Farrell, Jay Kochel, Al Munro, and Wendy Teakel - work across a range of media to demonstrate the ongoing relevance of the grid within contemporary art.

LAST DAY... join us for a Curator talk at 3pm today.
