Dissonant Rhythms :: Ross Manning
17 June - 16 August 2020
Galleries 1 & 2

Dissonant Rhythms is Brisbane-based artist and musician Ross Manning’s first-ever survey exhibition. Best known for his use of everyday materials, Manning’s exhibition features sculptures that repurpose ceiling fans, fluorescent tubes, and overhead projectors. Propelled by electricity and their own kinetic forces, Manning’s work engulfs the entirety of the spaces they exist in, capturing viewers in mesmerising experiences with light and sound.

Spanning the past decade of Manning’s practice, Dissonant Rhythms was originally presented at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) and has now been reconfigured to tour across Australia. Dissonant Rhythms is curated by Aileen Burns, Johan Lundh, and Madeleine King.
