Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) presents a new major exhibition for the Winter season, Zzzzz: Sleep, Somnambulism, Madness.

From the grand foyer entry to the main gallery upstairs, visitors will see installations, video work, drawing, painting, and sculpture that explore the realms of sleep, the subconscious, dreaming and altered states; that examine the way the sleeping figure is represented in contemporary art; and that questions the impact of work and economic pressures on relaxation.

Zzzzz is presented in a theatrical and immersive environment, as if one is walking into a series of darkened bedrooms, yet no one appears to be asleep.

Artists include:

Andy Warhol
Chicks on Speed
Lee Hadwin
Mabel Juli
Barbora Kleinhamplová and Tereza Stejskalová
Kate Mitchell
Erica Spitzer Rasmussen
The Telepathy Project
Javier Téllez
Ronnie van Hout

This exhibition has been developed by Gertrude Contemporary in partnership with Murray Art Museum Albury and the Melbourne International Arts Festival.
