How to Build a Universe

Exhibition and Shows

8 Jul 2021 to 18 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

In the past, museums built universes that were miniature representations of the world, but these microcosms were limited and limiting constructions. This exhibition takes the theatrical methodologies of dominant museums as a jumping-off point to launch a creative intervention.

Four installation artists, Hannah Toohey, Daniella Rüffino, Chaohui Xie and Jacqueline Felstead, respond to the idea of universe building, commenting on the impossibilities of constructing a complete or neutral representation of the world we inhabit. These artists critique and pose alternatives.

Through their works and experimentation we access multiple perspectives as if looking in at the world through a microcosm of speculative lenses.

How to Build a Universe is generously supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants.
