ACCA International: Haroon Mirza
Art meets musical composition meets electrical manipulation in the unusual and varied practice of Haroon Mirza. The London-based artist is not only exhibiting at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) this month, but completely overhauling it, using its vast architecture to create a reverberation chamber as part of a show entitled “The Construction of an Act”. The exhibition constitutes this year’s iteration of the annual “ACCA International”, whereby ACCA presents the work of an international artist at a pivotal point in their career.
