This exhibition comprises internationally acclaimed Victoria-based artist Mowry Baden’s work from the late 1960s to the present. Baden is known for producing intricate, sometimes humorous sculptural works and installations that borrow from the fields of perceptual psychology, science and architecture, and often solicit the audience’s participation.

Known for producing intricate, sometimes humorous sculptural works and installations, Mowry Baden deploys objects and forms that range from seat belts and reconfigured industrial devices, to purpose-built rooms in which ping-pong balls ricochet off the walls. The recipient of the prestigious Governor General’s Award and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, Baden disrupts our reliance on vision and instills a heightened sensory awareness of our position in, and movement through, space. Works spanning more than forty years of Baden’s prolific career will be on view as part of this survey presentation.
