In our fast paced times, this new exhibition at Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) considers how technology is impacting sculptural art practice, and how sculptural works produced today might be received by those in the future. With artists from nine countries represented, Future Eaters offers a worldly perspective on contemporary sculptural practice and explores how materials, forms and artists have responded to this technological age.
Considering how sculpture has the potential to outlive its creators and become "residues of our existence", Future Eaters abandons the typical gallery format, instead taking place in a highly architectural 'infinite grid' designed by artist Damiano Bertoli. In addition, MUMA has also commissioned several new artworks and installations by Bertoli and other Australian artists Benjamin Armstrong, Marley Dawson, Lewis Fidock and Joshua Petherick and Mira Gojak.
Future Eaters takes place at MUMA and is on now until Saturday, September 23.
