In the Balance: Art for a Changing World features works by Australian and international contemporary artists that respond to ecological concerns. The exhibition reflects the diversity of environmental debates and concerns within and beyond Australia today, and features works that address a spectrum of issues including sustainability and recycling.
The exhibition encompasses photography, film, installation and architecture, drawing on the MCA Collection and loans from across the country. In the Balance: Art for a Changing World presents a number of site-specific and commissioned works, performances, and projects taking place both within and outside the Museum. In addition, the exhibition explores the role of community engagement and participation.
