Ross Manning to curate MCA ARTBAR for the Sydney Biennale

Brisbane-based artist Ross Manning continues his exploration of the mechanisms of technology and nature of light and the role it plays in human perception with Spectra V, a kinetic sculpture installed on Cockatoo Island, one of the venues for the 16th Biennale of Sydney, You imagine what you desire. Manning will also curate the MCA Art Bar during the biennale. ARTBAR happens after dark every month at the Museum of Contemporary Art. It combines exhibitions, music, design and live acts under the direction of a guest curator, transforming the venue into a "pulsating piece of performance art." Manning's ARTBAR runs on 30 May from 7-11pm.
