About the exhibition

A multiple is an art object produced in a limited (or sometimes unlimited) edition. Many artists produce multiples as a practical way of distributing their work more widely and democratically than is possible with one-off works of art. Multiples often challenge the traditional boundaries of art by employing modern manufacturing techniques.

The strong interest taken by artists in producing multiples was indicated in this exhibition, which focused on works made in the 1990s. It included a number of recently acquired multiples by prominent international and Australian artists from the MCA Collection and the Contemporary Art Archive.
