Pipilotti Rist
Mercy Garden Retour Skin installation view at Museum of Contemporary Art Australia for Biennale of Sydney 2014

A major survey of work by the Swiss video artist is coming to the Museum of Contemporary Art for summer 2017/2018

Pipilotti Rist's four-wall video aquarium 'Mercy Garden Retour Skin' at the MCA was one of our favourite works in the 2014 Biennale of Sydney. The artist will be back in the building come October 2017, for a major survey of her work spanning from the late 1980s to now, curated by the MCA's Natasha Bullock.

Among the works show, we're hoping that her 1997 work 'Ever Is Over All' – reportedly an inspiration for Beyoncé's 'Hold Up' clip from Lemonade – makes an appearance.

This exhibition is part of the Sydney International Art Series, which within the last two years has brought Yoko Ono and Grayson Perry to the MCA, and the forthcoming Tatsuo Miyajima exhibition.

See who's at the AGNSW in summer 2017.
