The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) is pleased to present Brisbane-based artist and musician Ross Manning's first-ever survey exhibition, Dissonant Rhythms. Best known for his use of everyday materials, Manning's major exhibition features sculptures that repurpose ceiling fans, fluorescent tubes, and overhead projectors, creating exquisite interplays of light and sound.

In a major new commission made especially for the IMA’s galleries, the artist has constructed a large-scale self-playing instrument that resembles a wave form, along with a custom-designed performance space for the artist and his collaborators. In what is a transformative opportunity, the four-gallery exhibition will be complemented by the publication of his first monograph, published by the IMA, accompanied by a vinyl LP, released by IMA and Room40.

The exhibition is curated by IMA’s Directors, Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, and Senior Manager, Madeleine King. The publication, Dissonant Rhythms, is edited by Madeleine King, and features contributions by Ellie Buttrose, Caleb Kelly, and Danni Zuvela.

Ross Manning: Dissonant Rhythms will tour to ten venues across Australia, 2018–20.
