Annette Messager: motion / emotion

24 July-26 October 2014

Annette Messager: motion / emotion has now finished.

Annette Messager is an internationally renowned French artist whose diverse practice encompasses drawing, artist’s books, photography, sculpture and installation.

Featuring works from the early 1970s to the present, this represents the artist’s first retrospective exhibition in Australia and includes her large kinetic installations with mechanical and inflatable elements.

At once playful and disturbing, Messager’s works employ everyday materials and objects in their realisation, from woollen gloves and items of clothing, to black netting, soft toys and badges.

Curator: Rachel Kent (MCA)


This exhibition is part of the F20, an initiative of the Embassy of France to Australia, highlighting 20 French-Australian cultural events.
