MCA Publications

In 2012 the MCA released the iPad specific application MCA Publications. This app hosted the MCA’s digital publications for Anish Kapoor and The Wandering: Moving images from the MCA Collection.

Download the MCA Publications app from the iTunes store

Preview key content from the Anish Kapoor ePublication for those without an iPad

Anish Kapoor has created some of the most memorable artworks of our times. Since the early 1980s, he has produced bodies of work that push the boundaries of sculpture through an exploration of the nature of perception in relation to space, form and mass.

This publication explores Kapoor’s work through the prism of his 2012 exhibition at the MCA. The publication was produced as a “living catalogue”. The preview version includes video interviews, writing, documentation of exhibited works and behind the scenes footage of Kapoor’s studio and the publication was updated with interviews, images and videos of one of the most complex installations attempted by the Museum, and then updated again with reflections on the experience of the exhibition itself.
