Art | March 5, 2020

Art | March 1, 2020

Filthy Lucre is an immersive installation by contemporary American artist Darren Waterston, presenting a detailed reimagining of James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room - the sumptuous 19th-century dining room once housed just a stone’s throw away from the V&A and now installed at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

OUR WORLD IS BURNING

Art | February 29, 2020

The exhibition "Our World Is Burning" offers a committed view of contemporary creation from the Arabian Gulf, where wars and diplomatic tensions have constantly determined the history of the early 21st century. Its title explicitly refers to the human dramas created by the successive conflicts in this region. "Our World Is Burning" also rings out like an alarm at a time when political vicissitudes are being added to by ecological catastrophes, embodied by massive destructive forest fires, from Amazonia to Siberia, via California and Australia, which bear witness to global warming. We are now "facing Gaia," to quote the title of Bruno Latour's book, facing its finitude. The world's commotions and instability are now perceived as being inexorable artifices created by mankind, swept away by its immoderation and omnipotence. Catastrophe is no longer a horizon for philosophical or aesthetic speculation, as Edmund Burke might have viewed it in the mid-18th century, during his quest for the sublime, when confronted with the troubles of the world. It is a reality. Read more

Curated by MCA Chief Curator Rachel Kent, Cornelia Parker is the largest presentation of the artist’s work in Australia and encompasses over 40 artworks from the late 1980s to the present. Read more
