From dioramas to dolls’ houses, atomic models to cloud-chambers, mandalas to maquettes – A working model of the world gathers together charismatic objects created to help us understand the world around us and imagine new possibilities.

The exhibition explores the way models are used to create and share knowledge. It asks how we use models to contemplate, experiment, invent and teach.

Presenting outstanding new and existing artworks alongside emblematic and evocative models borrowed from public, private and research collections, the exhibition stages a conversation between different forms of material thinking from many disciplines.

A working model of the world features artists who examine the role of models in human experience, and deploy techniques and forms of model-making in their work, including in the Sydney iteration:
