Desire lines are paths carved by repeated human diversion from designated routes. ACCA has used this concept of shared instinct and collective disobedience as the springboard from which to launch an enormous, 31-artist-strong group show featuring international and Australian artists.

Some (Bruce Nauman) are familiar names, and others are fresh, like Charlie Sofo. Francis Alys is displaying his renowned Walks series, and Stephen Sutcliffe's uncanny video works are on display.

Two installations are the show's main features — a moving rock sculpture by Mel O'Callaghan finds a new form for the icily detached beauty found in her barren landscape photography, while Dan Shipsides' climbing-based installation adorns the circumference of the ACCA building, in a literal implementation of the show's theme.

ACCA is rarely off the mark, and this powerhouse exhibition looks to be no different.
