About the exhibition:

Art comes face-to-face with architecture in Vision in Motion, a project by the artist Narelle Jubelin. A celebration of significant – though often overlooked – modernist architecture, the exhibition presents a survey of Jubelin’s intricately sewn petit points of the past three decades alongside new site-specific works and videos, inspired by architecture and the built environment. The exhibition will be reconfigured for each venue of the tour.

Vision in Motion has now concluded at the University of Sydney and at Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne. It will open in 2013 at the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia.

Vision in Motion at the University of Sydney:

As part of the Sydney Festival 2012 visitors were invited to take a ‘modernist walk’ across the campus, visiting key sites that Jubelin animated with temporary installations, videos, and her petit point renditions. The University of Sydney venues included: School of Chemistry Building lecture-theatre foyers; University Art Gallery; Tin Sheds Gallery window, Verge Gallery and the Sci-Tech Library windows on City Road.

Narelle Jubelin: Vision in Motion has been developed by the University Art Gallery, The University of Sydney, in association with Monash University Museum of Art, and the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia.

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