Melbourne International Arts Festival 2019

Melbourne International Arts Festival’s visual art events include the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art presenting a sonic installation by Haroon Mirza who responds to the ‘echo chamber’ the architecture their unique space creates. Mariana Castillo Deball exhibits for the first time in Australia with Monash University Museum of Art and across two spaces, Gertrude Contemporary and Margaret Lawrence Gallery, we find ‘Hope Dies Last’ which has us sit in the discomfort inevitable when we let go of optimism. Denton Corker Marshall architects examine the histories of four galleries — Melbourne’s United Artists, City Gallery, and the Sydney and Melbourne iterations of Anna Schwartz Gallery, where the show is on view. At Tolarno, teamLab’s interest in technology and futurism reflect on the splendour of the natural world.
