ADAM LINDER’S HUSTLE HARDER BRINGS A MONTH OF LIVE PERFORMANCE TO MCA

HUSTLE HARDER, a new performance exhibition by acclaimed choreographer Adam Linder, commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA Australia), is being presented at the MCA until Sunday 20 August 2023.

Performed for the duration of the Museum’s opening hours by a rotating cast of nine dancers, HUSTLE HARDER  highlights how the format of the exhibition converges with the physical, durational and collaborative dimensions of live performance.

Adam Linder makes work for both the stage and gallery spaces, often riffing on the histories and social codes that underpin these different contexts.

Linder has collaborated with renowned Australian fashion designer Dion Lee on the costumes, with architect Deniz Celtek on the exhibition, and with Berlin  based sound designer  Steffen Martin.

The exhibition has been curated by Anneke Jaspers, MCA Senior Curator, Collection. HUSTLE HARDER will also feature artworks from the MCA Collection by Harry Armanious, Agatha Gothe-Snape and Tracey Moffatt.

It is great to see live performance at the MCA. Adam Linder’s HUSTLE HARDER is a deeply conceptual work won’t appeal to all audiences. It can be seen at the Macgregor gallery, Level 1, the MCA until 20 August 2023.
