Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, Auckland
Serene Velocity in Practice: MC510 & CS183 will be Stevenson’s first solo exhibition at a New Zealand public gallery in more than 15 years. For the occasion Stevenson has developed a significant new large-scale installation which has been commissioned by Auckland Art Gallery with partners the Biennale of Sydney 2018 and Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA).
Serene Velocity in Practice: MC510 & CS183 is based on two seemingly unrelated academic courses, MC510 and CS183, which were modules taught for a short time in Californian higher-learning institutions. The installation takes the form of an imagined tertiary institution of two classrooms, each of which represents one of these courses.
