26 Nov 2022 – 23 Apr 2023
GOMA | Gallery 1.1 The Fairfax Gallery, Gallery 1.2, Gallery 1.3 Eric & Marion Taylor Gallery

‘Air’ showcases immersive and large-scale works by leading international and Australian artists exploring the cultural, ecological and political dimensions of air.

Presented across the entire ground floor of GOMA, ‘Air’ features Collection favourites including Ron Mueck’s monumental human sculpture In bed, Anthony McCall’s solid-light installation Crossing and Jonathon Jones’ lyrical evocation of wind, breath and bird call, untitled (giran), along with a significant new commission by Tomás Saraceno.

The exhibition will be a journey through this invisible, ethereal and vital element, reflecting on awareness of our shared atmosphere as life-giving, potentially dangerous and rapidly warming.

Tickets go on sale late 2022.
