Fischli & Weiss, The right way, 1983.
A spoonful weighs a ton brings together the work of seven artists. The title of this exhibition, taken from a 1999 Flaming Lips song title, is intended to initiate abstract conversation about weight and density at a moment when contemporary attitudes play down the ‘relative heaviness of art’, concentrating instead on pictorial surfaces and the moving image.
Each of the artworks in this exhibition balances what the artist has to ‘say’—their theme or thesis—with its own total lingering density of presence. This enduring aspect of the work might be phenomenal, or the wait/weight of time or of history, a rational or metaphysical weight, or something of all of these.
We look forward to letting you know our exciting 2015 program in the new year and remind you that we will be closed for summer holidays from Wednesday 24 December, reopening on Tuesday 6 January 2015.
Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm
