"To Rule Again" (2004) by Shahzia Sikander.

"Moebius Ship" detail (2006) by Tim Hawkinson.

"Bat" (2007) by Tim Hawkinson.

It's been a little while since I've been to the Museum of Contemporary Art so a good mental shake-up was in order. D and I set off to check out the exhibition Tim Hawkinson: Mapping the Marvellous, which was suitably mind bending, and stumbled along the works of Shahzia Sikander. The art by this Pakistani-born, US-based artist were not what you usually expect to find at the MCA. They're pretty, intricate and incredibly detailed. Definitely worth catching, if you get the chance before it closes on February 17.

Tim Hawkinson is outstanding. The Art21 on him was so fascinating!

It was more D's choice to check out the exhibition, but I'm really glad we did. That's what I love about the Museum of Contemporary Art - you never know what journey it's going to take you on.
