Gravity (and Wonder)

3 September 2016 - 27 November 2016

at Penrith Regional Gallery

Gravity invisibly governs the movement of the world, the shape of space and the flow of time. Gravity (and Wonder) explores human fascination with these fundamental aspects of the universe through scientific investigations and artistic explorations.

Marking the beginning of a long-term partnership between Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), Gravity (and Wonder) is a vibrant three month program with a range of events, workshops and programs extending the themes of the central exhibition.

Gravity (and Wonder) at Penrith Regional Gallery
Explore the art and science of gravity as phenomenon and an invisible force surrounded by mystery and wonder which has generated spiritual and poetic responses. Curated by Dr Lee-Anne Hall and Katie Dyer, this exhibition brings together rare scientific instruments and inventions, specialist objects and archival material from the MAAS collection  alongside the work of contemporary artists who examine gravity as phenomena and effect, mass and attraction, motion and acceleration, time and space and ultimately transcendence.
