Co-curated by Richard Lewer and Ric Spencer


Inside Running: the sport of art brought together nine artists whose passion for sport has bled into their art, in an exhibition of specially commissioned work. Sport takes constant practice and for these artists the discipline and challenges of training and playing has become part of the way they make art and what they make art about.

The artists’ commitment to sports, ranging from surfing, scuba diving and basketball to boxing and climbing, informs and influences their work, which includes video, sculpture and large-scale installation.

More about participation and less about spectatorship Inside Running delved into Australia’s underlying obsession to play.
