SYDNEY.- Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre
have brought their phenomenal exhibition Pulse of the Dragon online, with the launch of an innovative new virtual tour that allows viewers to experience the exhibition from the comfort of their own homes.
CPACs 3D virtual tour incorporates state of the art technology that allows art connoisseurs to walk through the exhibition one click at a time. For a fully immersive experience, audiences can engage with clickable markers throughout the gallery that provide curatorial insights and artist interviews.
Pulse of the Dragon is a stunning showcase of contemporary art, featuring 10 local Chinese-Australian artists and Chinese artists coming together to traverse cultural traditions: religious witchcraft and mythology, folk arts and culture.
Pulse of the Dragon is curated by internationally recognised local artist Guan Wei and China based Cang Xin and produced by Casula Powerhouse. The 3D virtual tour was made by videographer Dominik Mersch.
We are thrilled to announce that we are bringing our latest exhibition to the digital realm. Pulse of The Dragon invites audiences on a powerful visual journey that delves into culturally rich artworks by some of the most exciting artists of our time, said CPAC director Craig Donarski.
Pulse of the Dragon artists include: Palla Jerroff, whose work features in the prestigious Guangdong Museum of Art private collection; Yang Xifa, whose paintings use the human body as a medium while utilizing traditional Chinese materials including fine Xuangcheng writing paper; as well as Chinese experimental multimedia artist Gu Xiaoping, incorporating traditional Chinese woodware ink tools into installations, photography and video.
In these uncertain times, art becomes an even more important aspect of how we can connect with one another. Audiences can look forward to more immersive online experiences in the coming weeks including Adaptation, another exhibition set to showcase works by artists with disability in the form of an online video.
Adaptation provides an insightful glimpse into how seven artists have adapted their art to the challenges and new potentials they encounter when working with their bodies and having a disability or illness. Artists featured include Ohni Blu, Bruno Booth, Marion Conrow, Pat Larter, Prue Stevenson, Nell Syme and Louise Zhang. The video exhibition of Adaptation is set to go live on CPACs website in the coming days.
The exhibition is just one piece of online programming CPAC are producing over the coming weeks and months including kids workshops, podcast recordings, an online market, cooking classes with CPACs resident chef Frederico Rekowski, edible gardening tips with in-house gardener Lauren Booth and much more.
