In 2015, conductor and composer David Banney encountered artist Brett McMahon’s installation work for the first time and saw in it the dynamic interplay between symmetry and broken symmetry that he was seeking in his own music. It was then that they discovered the formal and conceptual affinities between their practices and Baroque and Beyond came to life. The resulting body of new work is not so much a collaboration as a convergence, a conversation around texture, tone and contrasting sensation. Exhibition continues until 2 September 2017
