A group of major new acquisitions to explore the extraordinarily diverse and surprising field of contemporary sculpture: Ai Weiwei, Martin Creed, Olaf Breuning, Thomas Demand, Lara Favaretto and many more.
Showcasing the Gallery’s Collection and featuring a group of major new acquisitions, ‘Sculpture is Everything’ explores the extraordinarily diverse and surprising field of contemporary sculpture. Sculpture is everything — from found objects to kinetic structures, from monuments to installation and land art, from pop assemblages to ritual objects. Form, material and three-dimensional space have been considered to define the medium of sculpture; the exhibition points to how these sculptural concerns are played out in film, photography, painting and performance.
Installed throughout the ground floor of GOMA, the exhibition features works by Australian and international artists including Ai Weiwei, Martin Creed, Olaf Breuning, Thomas Demand, Lara Favaretto, Simryn Gill, Romuald Hazoumé, Gordon Hookey, Zilvinas Kempinas, Anish Kapoor, Gordon Matta-Clark, John Mawurndjul, Henrique Oliveira, Dennis Oppenheim, Michael Sailstorfer, Kathy Temin, Ken Thaiday Sr, Rachel Whiteread and Erwin Wurm.
