Making Worlds at the Art Gallery of NSW

Mon 7th August, 2023 – Sun 31st December, 2023
Art Gallery of NSW
Art Gallery Road, Sydney
The star of this exhibition is South Korean conceptual artist Kimsooja's work Archive of mind – a hands-on installation inviting visitors to shape a sphere from clay.

When the Art Gallery of NSW's new North Building opened in late 2022, a highlight was the Making Worlds exhibition, a selection of contemporary works from across the world, drawn from the gallery's own collection. Initially intended to be temporary, it has proven so popular it will continue to be displayed for the forseeable future.

The star of the exhibition is Archive of mind, a hands-on installation by South Korean conceptual artist Kimsooja welcoming visitors to shape a sphere from clay. Together, the many balls represent artists' creation of worlds, and the connections artworks create – themes that continue throughout the rest of the exhibition.

Also on show are works by Swiss-born artist Ugo Rondinone, Meriam artist Gail Mabo and Indian artist Reena Saini Kallat.
