MvS Architects collaborated with Natasha Bullock to redesign the gallery spaces to take the viewer on an emotional journey of mystery, discovery, pressure and release. The journey is manifest in a series of interlinked rooms and corridors with new walls soaring high into the galleries coffered ceilings while compressed spaces are relieved by glimpses to the subsequent rooms. The collaboration has enabled the curatorial spread and the architecture to jointly provide a platform for seeing the artworks in a new way.

Curated by Bullock, the exhibition includes photography, photomedia, video, collage, sculpture and installation with works by Polly Borland (USA/Aus), Eliza Hutchison (Vic), Paul Knight (UK/Aus), Angelica Mesiti (France/Aus), David Noonan (UK/Aus), David Rosetzky (Vic), Darren Sylvester (Vic), Tim Silver (NSW), Glenn Sloggett (Vic), Grant Stevens (QLD) and Justene Williams (NSW).

The exhibition is open until the 21st of April 2013
