    Patrick Pound’s The Great Exhibition is the first comprehensive exhibition of the New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist, which will open at the National Gallery of Victoria in March 2017.
    An avid collector, Pound is equally interested in systems and the ordering of objects: an attempt, perhaps, to make things coherent. As Pound says, "to collect is to gather your thoughts through things". Through complex arrangements and installations of objects drawn from the artist’s expansive archives, Pound’s work playfully and poetically explores the art of collecting, and the ways in which things can hold and project ideas. For this exhibition Pound has created several vast new collections, which he describes as ‘museums of things’. Objects that are seemingly redundant or overlooked are meticulously collected by the artist and put back into ‘use’ in these museums.
    Opening on 31 March at NGV Australia, the exhibition runs until 30 July 2017
