First commission inspired by

Create the impossible in a work that pushes the boundaries of your discipline to the extreme

In 1907, one of the world’s largest shipping magnates, chairman of White Star Line, J. Bruce Ismay, proposed the commission of a new class of ocean liner – one that would compete on size rather than speed and become the ultimate statement of comfort and luxury. The result was RMS Titanic.

In 2019, emerging artists from the University of Melbourne were commissioned to create an ‘impossible’ work that pushes the boundaries of their discipline to the extreme. The artists have responded with complex and intricate pieces delving into themes such as rape culture and climate change.
