Rapid eye movement art exhibition
A Rapid Eye Movement exhibition, curated by Timmah Ball and Raina Peterson, will be on display at the Wyndham Cultural Center next year,
The show will take place from Thursday January 20 to Sunday March 6
The exhibition can be summarized as follows:
“During sleep, our brain goes through five different phases. One of them is rapid eye movement (REM) where our eyes move rapidly in various directions. This is where most dreams occur, influencing our memory and mood.
In an unexpected time of closure, separated from bodies, place and community, sleep has a new meaning and a new materiality. It shapes our consciousness, our movements and our social interactions.
As the city comes to a halt, our dreams have exploded, populating our minds with limitless visions and utopian desires. Rapid Eye Movement asks how we imagine and live through time, space, and our bodies, even as bureaucracy contains us.
Catch these ideas during your waking hours at the Wyndham Art Gallery in a guest exhibition curated by Timmah Ball and Raina Peterson, showcasing the work of a range of artists exploring these possibilities.
The Wyndham Art Gallery is located at 177 Watton Street, Werribee and is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on January 20 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., depending on COVID restrictions.
