– Where

In summer 2011-12 the Museum of Contemporary Art presented Australia’s first solo exhibition by one of the world’s favourite interactive artists, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, as part of the Sydney International Art Series. The exhibition offered an exciting first glimpse at one of the Museum’s refurbished galleries ahead of the opening of the new and expanded MCA in March 2012, the exhibition featured 12 artworks, including two works made especially for Sydney.

Lozano-Hemmer’s highly-interactive and complex digital artworks have attracted international acclaim and his exhibition at the MCA was no exception. In keeping with the title Recorders, visitors were encouraged to leave traces of themselves throughout the show, whether it was an image of the contents of their pockets, a question they long wanted answered, the sound of their voice or even their heartbeat! In fact, participation was required to bring the works to life.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Recorders was a part of the Sydney International Art Series which brings the world’s most outstanding exhibitions to Australia. The exhibition was made possible with the support of Destination NSW.
