"The stuff of this exhibition is the stuff that makes up the world around us—ordinary domestic objects and discarded junk—that are transformed by artists into extraordinary encounters." —Emma Bugden, curator
All collections are about accrual over time, where each work added builds towards a critical mass. Similarly, the works in this show have been created from a process of accumulation, in which everyday materials and images are combined for transformative effect.
Critical Mass showcases works from The Dowse Collection and highlights a recent long-term loan from The Jim Barr and Mary Barr Collection.
Artists include: Lillian Budd, Simon Denny, Don Driver, Mikala Dwyer, Richard Killeen, Jae Hoon Lee, Lauren Lysaght and Rohan Wealleans.
