'Set in Motion' is a fascinating exhibition of light, sound and movement. Kinetic sculpture by Len Lye will be displayed alongside the work of four contemporary artists: Rebecca Baumann, Žilvinas Kempinas, Taree Mackenzie and Ross Manning; each artist’s practice is an experimentation and improvisation with materials and movements.

In Lye’s Zebra (1965), a steel rod spins and sways, while in the contemporary artworks, fans whir, magnetic tape flies and Plexiglass shimmers. A display of archival material and process drawings offers a window into each of the artist’s making, thinking and ideas.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
