Greater Together

ACCA’s current exhibition is a exploration of the ways we might work together in an age where many of the previous barriers to collaboration – time, distance, language – are breaking down. Greater Together presents nine projects by both Melbourne-based and international artists that have evolved through alternative methods of thinking about cooperation and collaboration. The centrepiece of the show is a full-size oak tree installed into the main space by Swedish duo Simon Goldin and Jakob Sennedy (Goldin + Senneby), which includes daily readings of a short story by Swedish writer Jonas Hassen Khemiri performed by gallery attendants clothed in uniforms by Melbourne designer Annie Wu. At a time defined by environmental and political tensions, Greater Together explores how bringing people together can create new opportunities for change.
