CUBIC MUSEUM

Saturday 13 June, 2020

The Cubic Museum was a performance installation set inside a 3 cubic metre Perspex cube situated at the centre of the astonishing Pacific Cultures Gallery at the South Australian Museum. The clear Perpex cube provided an opportunity to reference and recontextualise the classic 19th century museum display case.

For this project, three Adelaide based choreographers – Erin Fowler, Lewis Major and Jo Stone – were commissioned by ADT to collaborate with the museum’s researchers and scientists, exploring concepts derived from the collection and its archives.

The project marked the beginning of an ongoing relationship between the SA Museum and ADT that has extended into other subsequent exploratory collaborations.
