    Marian Tubbs and Michelle Ussher are exhibiting work in Another Dimension at McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery. Curated by Simon Lawrie, the exhibition explores the dynamic relationship between form and content in contemporary art, by positioning sculpture as part of a broader two and three-dimensional spatial practice. Within traditional artistic categories a clear definition between pictorial and physical space can be found, yet the relations between image and object are more fluid today. This exhibition showcases six contemporary Australian artists who, working across and between media, have creatively ventured into other dimensions.

    Officially opening this Sunday 8 April, the exhibition runs until 15 July.

    Isadora Vaughan and Michelle Ussher have been named as contributing artists to the 7th TarraWarra Biennial, 'From Will to Form'.

    Curated by Emily McCormack, the exhibition stems from the idea that 'art is not a matter of reproducing or inventing forms but of capturing forces', and considers how the wild intangible forces that animate behaviour might be present within an artwork. Vaughan will be creating a site specific sculpture comprised of molten glass, uranium glass and grit from the surrounding environment that will seemingly pierce the Museum's expansive North window, spilling out onto the ledge beyond.

    Open from 3 August - 6 November.
