Out of Hand: Materialising the Digital

Exhibition

Out of Hand: Materialising the Digital explores the increasingly important role of digital manufacture in contemporary art, science, fashion, design and architecture.

The exhibition features works by more than 60 artists, designers and architects from around the world including Barry X Ball, Zaha Hadid, Iris van Herpen and Ron Arad, as well as works from Australia and the Asia-Pacific, and objects from the MAAS collection. Out of Hand will examine the place and impact of digital technology in the design and production of objects, recognising that many techniques have emerged from past ideas and are now defining new possibilities, understandings and expectations.

Enjoy a guided tour of Out of Hand by Museum staff every Saturday at 2pm*. No need to pre-book, just be in the exhibition at this time.
