A shape of thought

26th August 2017 – 4th February 2018
Art Gallery of New South Wales

For A shape of thought Dwyer co-opts both the every­day and the fab­u­lous – float­ing 150 sil­ver bal­loons high above the Gallery floor, installing an elab­o­rate sus­pen­sion of fab­ric shapes held aloft by stock­ings, and build­ing a large cir­cu­lar sculp­tur­al gath­er­ing that includes Per­spex crys­tal-like structures.

Art Gallery of NSW direc­tor Michael Brand states A shape of thought as being the sec­ond in a new series of exhi­bi­tions for the Gallery that present new and recent work by sig­nif­i­cant Aus­tralian and inter­na­tion­al con­tem­po­rary artists.
