Limits to Growth is the first survey exhibition of Melbourne-based artist Nicholas Mangan. Bringing together five major projects made between 2009 and 2016, Mangan’s immersive moving-image installations masterfully balance complex narratives.

Co-developed by the Institute of Modern Art, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, and the Kunst-Werke Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin; the works in this show emerge out of the conditions of Mangan’s own geographic region, the Asia Pacific, in which Australia has played a decisive role. Mangan weaves the geographic specificity of these locations into a bigger picture that considers the global economy, resource extraction, and the ultimate power of the sun.
