Blue Assembly launches with the exhibition Oceanic Thinking, which directly reflects on the many complex, entangled stories of the ocean. Blue light will fill the Art Museum from a large-scale installation across the front windows, and inside the building artists explore the watery spaces of our world from the perspectives of past, present and future.

Artists will also consider the nature of desire and the extractive violence of colonialism, as well as providing speculations about what a future lived in partnership with the ocean might look like.
