Josh Muir

Going Solo: First Nations recipient Joshua Muir will present a series of new works at the Bendigo Art Gallery in collaboration with digital animator Isobel Knowles and design consultancy Art Processors. His exhibition titled, What’s on your mind? investigates the role of digital media in shaping our current understandings of issues pertaining to the self and our natural world.

We are thrilled to announce that the National Gallery of Victoria will be acquiring 5 works from one of our represented artists, Atong Atem. The works to be acquired are from her 2015 Studio Series. From this organisation, Atong’s works will become an integral part of the NGV Contemporary Australian Collection and be toured, or leased, to a large-scale network of regional and metropolitan galleries all across Victoria.

MARS is excited to present work by Josh Muir to coincide with his current exhibition at NGV Australia, 'Josh Muir Animated'.

We are currently exhibiting a new body of work in the downstairs gallery. The full catalogue is now available to view online. 

We are delighted to be featured in 'EZ Australia: The Art of Contemporary Luxury Magazine.' The article, ‘Art Lives on MARS’ elaborates on ADA Consulting’s decade long experience in Public Art. As culture consultants, we are seeing now more than ever that public art commissions are underpinned with cultural narratives connected to a strong sense of place and community.
