The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Cosmopolis #1.5: Enlarged Intelligence
Mao Jihong Arts Foundation in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou
Cosmopolis #1.5: Enlarged Intelligence, opening November 2nd in Chengdu, Sichuan Province in south-west China, presents artworks and programs by almost 60 artists and groups, exploring ecology, technology and the commons, and envisioning how we today may draw on intelligent technologies, as well as on ecological intelligence, to advance social values—rather than leaving capital to largely define the uses of these techniques and knowledge systems.

The Cosmopolis platform was launched by the Centre Pompidou in 2016 to highlight research-based creative practices that are rooted in a particular context yet engage in international conversations, reflecting on cultural translation and the situatedness of knowledge.

VALERIE SPARKS
MONASH GALLERY OF ART
This exhibition is the first in a series presented by MGA that profiles and explores the work of William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize alumni.

Valerie Sparks won the Bowness Photography Prize in 2016 for her work ‘Prospero’s Island – North East’ from the series Prospero’s Island (2016). Sparks creates magnificently beautiful large-scale works that entice the viewer with perfectly impossible landscapes. Each scene is meticulously constructed using her photographs of different landscapes, flora, fauna and taxidermied animals from museum collections. These composite images, which could never exist in nature, draw attention to concerns over the destruction of landscape, post-colonialism and globalisation.

This exhibition draws together key works, charting Sparks’s significant practice and hinting at the exciting, immersive and innovative installations that will come next.
