In week 4, we will visit 2 exhibitions in Sydney: MCA COLLECTION: TODAY TOMORROW YESTERDAY at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Sounding the Future at the University of Technology Sydney Gallery.

We will first meet at the foyer of the Museum of Contemporary Art at 10.30 and travel to the UTS Gallery.

This excursion presents an excellent opportunity for us to visit exhibitions of contemporary arts together and discuss the ideas these works present, their execution and presentation as well as raise questions about the role and relevance of art and media.

For MEDA302 in particular, the value of physically encounter contemporary art and media works exhibited in an art space is particularly relevant when developing your Media Arts Project. Your focus will be in terms of the ideas and concepts explored the works as well as how these are executed as physical, material works. You will also be asked to pay close attention to the curatorial rationale of how works are installed and exhibited.

A note that This is a Voice has just opened at the Powerhouse Museum. Student general entry fee is $8. You are welcome to visit this exhibition after our excursion at UTS. The Powerhouse Museum is a short walk from UTS.
