Energies: Haines & Hinterding :: Exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney :: 25 June – 6 September 2015

David Haines and Joyce Hinterding are the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the MCA.  Their collaborative practice incorporates experimental and traditional media to investigate Hinterding’s fascination with energetic forces and Haines’ attraction to the intersection of hallucination and the environment. This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of their work and includes a number of key collaborative projects, solo works by both artists, and a new commission.
