The Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences (Powerhouse) is currently showing Out of Hand: Materialising the Digital until 25 June 2017. The exhibition includes multiple works by Craft ACT APMs Mitchell Whitelaw, Stephen Barrass and Gilbert Riedelbauch and also features Zaha Hadid and Ron Arad.
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.
