From dust to universe: Tomás Saraceno opens at Mona

An artist who can ‘change the world with beautiful things’ – Mona’s latest exhibition features the work of Tomás Saraceno with First Nations collaborations.

The global pandemic has heightened our awareness of air in relation to our own biology, but Tomás Saraceno Oceans of Air at the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) encompasses a much broader notion of the essential life-giving element.

Sitting at the intersection of science, technology and intrinsically collaborative practices, Saraceno’s works have long driven explorations of our relationship with the environment and the beings with whom we share this ecosystem.
