Join artist Ross Manning and the IMA Co-Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh as they provide a special insight into our current exhibition, Dissonant Rhythms.

This exhibition features sculptures comprised of everyday materials, such as repurposed fluorescent tubes, ceiling fans, and outmoded technology for exquisite interplays of light and sound. In a major new commission supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Manning has constructed a large-scale self-playing instrument that resembles a wave form, along with a custom-designed performance space for the artist and his collaborators.

Ross Manning’s practice spans experimental music, new technologies, and immersive installations that often involve the play of light. Recent solo and group exhibitions include: Why Not Ask Again?, 11th Shanghai Biennale, China; Set in Motion, Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand; Ross Manning, Carriageworks, Sydney, Australia; Device for Messaging Nothing, Milani Gallery, Brisbane, Australia, Colour Shift, Loop, Seoul, Korea (all 2016); Light Play, University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane, Australia; GOMA Q, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia; Interplay, The National Museum of Modern And Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea; Imaginary Accord, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia; The Kaleidoscopic Turn, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (all 2015); and You Imagine What you Desire, 19th Biennale of Sydney, Australia 2014.
