SPACE SUIT

Curated by Lucy Hammonds

11th Aug 2018 - 18th Nov 2018

The presence and depiction of fabric, and the ability to convincingly render the drape and movement of textiles, was a celebrated feature in traditional forms of figurative sculpture. Space Suit revisits this idea, looking to works of contemporary sculpture and installation in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery collection to consider the changed (or unchanged) role of fabric and textiles in more recent artistic practices.  From material hierarchies to gender politics to formal properties, Space Suit raises questions and forges connections across a diverse group of artists.
