Before Damien Hirst pave-set a platinum skull, there was Fiona Hall.

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney is currently holding an exhibiton by Australian contemporary artist Fiona Hall. Fiona Hall: Force Field runs from March 6 until June 1.

Hall’s  work explores social, political, environmental and economic concerns through a a diverse range of media including photography, sculpture, painting, installation. Hall exalts everyday objects and simultaneously subverts the plastic economies from which they emerge.

I found this exhibiton really inspiring and insightful. Hall’s often tongue-in-cheek approach to serious issues is really accessible, her works don’t drown in obscure meaning or pretentiousness.
Go and see it!

Also, keep your calendar free for Southern Exposure, featuring works from the San Diego MCA from the likes of Barbara Kruger, Ed Ruscha and Bill Viola. Runs from March 20 until June 1.
