New exhibition commissioned – Museum of Futures: Pandemic Pivots
We’re thrilled to announce that the Museum of Futures has received funding from the City of Sydney to create a new exhibition entitled Museum of Futures: Pandemic Pivots, which will bring artists and communities together to collaboratively co-design the futures they want amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. We are currently looking for artists who want to participate…
Calling potential artists…
We’re calling on 10 Sydney artists to create “objects from the future” that represent how 10 Sydney communities want the world to pivot in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. If selected to be part of this exhibition, artists will be given a budget of $1,000 to create their future artefacts.
Here’s the artists’ brief that we are circulating. Please pass this on to any artists/creatives/designers you know that might be interested.
Are you an artist interested in contributing?
