Connecting the World through Sculpture traces one journey among many possible routes through the Monash University Collection. Part of a yearlong program celebrating sixty years of the collection- the exhibition presents six decades of sculpture across three separate iterations: From the Ground Up, The Sculptural Body and In the Air. Together, these chapters reveal the twists and turns that characterise changing sculptural practice, encompassing abstract, minimal and figurative work; hard metal and soft sculptures; cut-outs, carved and cast works; readymades; and works inspired by Conceptual and Pop art and the everyday.
