VOLUNTEER CALL OUT: RYOJI IKEDA

Join our volunteer team for Carriageworks’ new immersive installation MICRO/MACRO. Developed during a residency at CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Research (Switzerland), this work by internationally acclaimed electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda tests the limits of what is observable and knowable in our universe. Sitting at the intersection of art and quantum physics, Ikeda uses the Planck Scale (which measures the smallest components of the universe – atoms) as a way of contrasting our human scale to the microscopic and unobservable. We invite you to be part of this unique invigilating opportunity.

The exhibition runs from 4 – 29 JULY 2018.

VOLUNTEER CALL OUT: DANIEL BUREN

Join our volunteer team for Daniel Buren’s Like Child’s Play; the next major international artist project in the Schwartz Carriageworks series. Daniel Buren is internationally recognised as one of France’s foremost contemporary artists. With a career that has spanned over five decades, he has presented extensively around the world – with large scale exhibitions of his work seen at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in New York and has exhibited more than ten times at the Venice Biennale. Featuring the iconic neat geometric forms for which his practice is known, Buren complicates the relationship between art and the structures that frame it, questioning how we look and perceive and the way a space can be used, borrowed and revealed in its social and physical nature.

The exhibition runs from 7 JUL – 12 AUG 2018.
