Made for this World
Contemporary Art and the Places We Build
Nov 2005 - Feb 2006

'Made for this World' examines the constructed environments we live in – our homes, streets, buildings, suburbs and cities. Through contemporary art, children can discover new ways of seeing, making and imagining their everyday surroundings.

Presented across several major gallery spaces, the exhibition features works on paper, installation, painting and video by more than 20 Australian and international artists from the Gallery's Collection. Integral to the exhibition is the inclusion of four large-scale interactive art works by international contemporary artists. These works give children plenty of hands-on opportunities to work with materials and turn their imaginative ideas into reality.

With easy-to-read labels, an activity booklet and the exhibition mascot, Kitty the Alley Cat as tour guide, children are taken on a creative journey to rediscover the familiar places where we live, work and play.
