A fusion of process, presentation and platform.

The gallery is more than a frame. More than an architectural setting. In Infrastructuralism, five artists produce and deliver work that ingratiates itself inside the physical system of the gallery. Born of the mechanisms of institutional operations, conscious of its setting, the exhibition exposes the hidden, neglected or secretive support structures that serve as platforms for the presentation of art objects.

Presented across all spaces at La Trobe Art Institute, the artworks marry humour with material awareness in a playful incursion into the infrastructure of our cultural organisations. All the various facets that go into making up architecture, display, function and administration are brought into play. This is treasure-hunting for curious minds looking to seek out a physical dissection of idea, structure and psychogeographic coding.
