THE MECHANICS OF ADAPTION
Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival
Brisbane’s hottest contemporary artists give up-cycling new meaning in this innovative exhibition.
In 1913 Marcel Duchamp created the work Bicycle Wheel, a work that changed the course of contemporary art by elevating ordinary objects to the status of art.
In 2021, after 10 successful years and four million trips, the Brisbane CityCycle program is ending. In a fascinating new Metro Arts Commission, our retired CityCycles are reimagined by artists Ross Manning, Kinly Grey, Susan Hawkins, Aishla Manning and Sarah Poulgrain, in collaboration with young people through Traction.
The pieces will be shown across Metro Arts’ galleries as a reflection of both art history and the urgent issues of the need for environmental awareness and sustainability.
