The Mechanics of Adaption | Metro Arts
In 1913 Marcel Duchamp created the work Bicycle Wheel, a work that changed the course of contemporary art by elevating ordinary objects to the status of art. In 2021, after 10 successful years and four million trips, the Brisbane CityCycle program is ending. In a fascinating new Metro Arts Commission, our retired CityCycles are reimagined by artists Ross Manning, Kinly Grey, Susan Hawkins, Aishla Manning and Sarah Poulgrain, in collaboration with young people through Traction. The pieces will be shown across Metro Arts’ galleries with an additional large-scale outdoor temporary artwork in the surrounding area.
