2nd Prize for Reconstruction Series after Balson 1947
MarS Collaborative are thrilled to have been awarded 2nd Prize at Royal Queensland Art Society (RQAS) Modernism Exhibition for our digital interactive work, Reconstruction Series after Balson, 1947. Judge Vanessa Van Ooyen, Senior Curator at QUT Art Museum wrote, ‘ Clever conceptual work that questions the uniqueness of the art object and ideas of authenticity inspired by one of our great abstractionists working in this country, Ralph Balson. What will the artwork be in the future if a computer can artificially generate it? What is the nature of creativity in a world where computers are increasingly the tool of choice and arbiter of knowledge.’ 7th -31st August 2018.
