Play On: The Art of Sport exhibition


Play On: The art of sport

A NETS Victoria and Ian Potter Museum of Art, the University of Melbourne touring exhibition.


Play On: The art of sport, celebrating 10 years of the Basil Sellers Art Prize, will open at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery on 2 March and run until 29 April 2018.


Play On: The art of sport encompasses a dynamic range of media, with works that respond to an equally extensive range of sporting genres, including community footy, women’s boxing, ground-keeping, gymnastics and AFL. They portray the sports arena as a powerful theatre of emotion, where hope, fear, adversity, triumph, glory and defeat are writ large. Even more strikingly though, sport is used as a lens through which to contemplate a number of society’s most cogent issues; from mechanisms of cultural belonging and marginalisation, gender and race relations, to technology’s impact on our physical limits.
