Testing Grounds is a modular platform, a shifting ecosystem of ideas. Designed and curated by Hsi-Nong Huang, Rachel Mortlock, Janek Nixon and India Stanbra, the exhibition invites 23 artists to showcase an experiment or an emerging idea as part of a collaborative structure.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the structure will evolve, with the potential for sections to be added or removed, shifted or rearranged, allowing the works to overlap and intertwine. In this way Testing Grounds will facilitate a shifting discourse, encouraging a multitude of encounters with the works.
