AC/DC is a high-voltage exhibition of switched-on art that explores the social, corporate and political power structures which inform the ways we think about and use energy. The works in this show not only rely on different forms of energy production and consumption, they foreground and critique the implications and possibilities of these systems, and the politics inherent in them. The exhibition takes its inspiration from the rift between inventors Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, whose systems of alternating current and direct current once competed in a ‘War of Currents’ when Tesla’s more complex technology threatened to topple Edison’s monopoly. Artists include Billy Apple, Wayne Barrar, Mary-Louise Browne, Bill Culbert, Disinformation, Brett Graham and Rachael Rakena, Joanna Langford, Mary Morrison and Joe Sheehan. The exhibition also includes a listening programme and screenings.

(Dates: 21 August - 3 October 2009)
