Their new exhibition, Works of Nature has been developed in collaboration with acclaimed creatives including Australian cinema legend Cate Blanchett, filmmaker Terrence Malick, award-winning novelist Daisy Lafarge, and musicians Johnny Greenwood, Meredith Monk, Jon Hopkins, Jóhann Jóhannsson and Howard Skempton.

The summer exhibition will mark another exciting world-premiere for ACMI as their Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Goddess: Power, Rebellion, Glamour prepares to close on Sunday 1 October.
