An exhibition of large-scale installations that physically immerse or surround the viewer, by leading international and Australian contemporary artists, including Bruce Nauman, James Turrell, Gary Hill, Joyce Hinterding, Mariko Mori and Luc Courchesne.
The Gallery has been transformed into a series of immersive spatial experiences -- both physical and virtual. The works range from the phantasmagoric to the meditative -- some intangible, others humorous or uncanny.
A key precursor to the contemporary artistic manifestations of light, movement and space is the work of Bauhaus artist László Moholy-Nagy. His 1930 film, Lightplay Black-White-Gray, is being screened as part of the exhibition. An accompanying film program also includes Jean Cocteau's 1950 film Orphée.
Presented in conjunction with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square, Melbourne.
Online Education Kit
Students from the College of Fine Arts (University of New South Wales), Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney) and School of Contemporary Arts (University of Western Sydney) play fast and loose with the idea of Space Odysseys. Online projects have serious fun with the notions of space, time and light. Selected work exhibited in conjunction with the exhibition.
