Arts & Culture – The Art of Sleep, MAMA Albury

Too busy to sleep? A new major winter exhibition at MAMA delves into the politics of sleep and what our brain really gets up to when we’re in the land of nod.

The exhibition features artworks by a man who can only make art while he’s asleep, a dress made from 2000 sleeping tablet prescriptions, a bed lit up by the electromagnetic fields generated by a dreaming brain, and a ground breaking video work by Andy Warhol.

The exhibition is laid out like darkened bedrooms, with little nap zones for visitors to enjoy.
