Drawing upon the unbridled energy and anarchy of fluxus and happenings, and looking back to the moment that art dematerialised, Art as a Verb presents a range of projects from the 1960s to today that challenge the traditional role of the artist and the site of the museum. This exhibition is accompanied by a publication with texts by Charlotte Day, Francis E. Parker & Patrice Sharkey, Victoria Lynn, Ian Milliss and Jarrod Rawlins, which can be purchased from the MUMA website. Sanné Mestrom: Weeping women – 2014 Ian Potter Sculpture Court Commission. Sanné Mestrom’s practice draws on iconic figures of twentieth-century modernist art, exploring how value is constructed and the deep ties between artworks and their cultural and historical context.
For MUMA’s 2014 Ian Potter Sculpture Court Commission Mestrom presents Weeping Women. These three monumental concrete sculptures are abstractions of the female form and also function as fountains, bringing together ancient representations of birth and fecundity, modernist interpretations of a monumental ‘femininity’ and more recent neo-modernist complications of such cultural inheritances.
