Among The Machines features works by 13 Australian and New Zealand artists who interrogate relationships between utopia, technology, nature and place. Situating the long term concerns of ecology alongside the hopefulness of utopian thought, and with a focus on the South Island of New Zealand, the works in the exhibition offer a speculative map for the future histories of media, machines and humans. For this, the second instalment in a series of collaborative curatorial projects with visiting scholars, the Gallery will be working with Dr Susan Ballard, a New Zealand academic based at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
Artists represented in Among The Machines are:
Aaron and Hannah Beehre
Jae Hoon Lee
Ronnie van Hout
