Serial explores the significance of the series in contemporary artistic practice. Whether as process, narrative, repetition, or correspondence, the series provides broad parameters for reading a work and its context. Beyond singular artistic statements, and established within a network of aesthetic and conceptual references, the meaning of a work becomes contingent and dynamic. Featuring new acquisitions and works from McClelland’s permanent collection, this exhibition explores the fluid relations between part and whole, process and product.

Including works by Benjamin Armstrong, Andrew Browne, Robert Ambrose Cole, Elizabeth Gower, Robert Jacks, Mick Kubarkku, John Bulunbulun Mingmarriya, Queenie McKenzie, Sanné Mestrom, Robert Owen, Adrian Page, Gloria Tamerre Petyarre, Ada Bird Petyarre, Kutuwulumi Purawarrumpatu, Rover Thomas, Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Ginger Riley, David Wadelton, Judy Watson, Lisa Waup.
