Fluidity

19 June 2020 - 16 August 2020

Fluidity is an exhibition presented on-site at Incinerator Gallery, and as an online resource via the Gallery’s website.

It explores the force of soft power to affect change in the world through the political and poetic navigation of water. Fluidity brings together newly commissioned works by some of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, as well as works curated from the City of Moonee Valley Art Collection. These are presented alongside long-standing ecological projects that celebrate sustainable and healthy waterways in Melbourne’s North West.

You can view the online exhibition here.
