Cao Fei: #18
On now until Sun 10 March

Cao Fei is one of China’s leading contemporary artists. She dragged the art world into the virtual world with RMB City (2007–11), a virtual metropolis built and hosted on the online platform Second Life. Her work continues to explore the fluid boundaries between physical and virtual existence, especially as mediated by art, industry, and technology. Please see our website for screening schedule.

Yona Lee: In Transit
On now until Sun 24 March

Yona Lee makes large, maze-like installations. Hundreds of metres of stainless-steel pipe are cut and welded to form elaborate linear structures, bisecting and transforming gallery spaces and the activities that take place there. By incorporating a miscellany of surprising urban and domestic fixtures, Lee infuses her pipe structures with an everyday surrealism.

From Scratch: 555 Moons
On now until Sun 10 March

From Scratch is New Zealand’s best-known art/music ensemble. Formed in 1974, by Philip Dadson, it draws on aspects of experimental, minimal, and non-Western musics, and on Fluxus, minimal art, and post-object art. From Scratch is known for its invented instruments, its utopian egalitarian politics, and its engagement with the sounds and rhythms of the Pacific.
