‘Shapes of Knowledge’ revolves around notions of research, the laboratory, and learning and teaching in relation to art practice. The exhibition at Monash University Museum of Art is the most extensive survey of its kind in Australia, and brings together projects driven by process and investigation. It is part of a broader “educational turn” in contemporary art, where artists and curators are increasingly undertaking in-depth academic research and adopting pedagogical methodologies. The eight projects are presented along with a series of newly commissioned and historical texts that challenge the conventions of knowledge and reveal how art can be transformed by learning.
