This is the first of two big collaborative art gallery shows we are doing with Superlight in November. (The other is a large invitation-only event at the Queensland Art Gallery). There will be live video and four hours of audio.
The National Gallery of Australia presents a mesmerising exhibition of video works by renowned American artist Bill Viola. The Passions 2000–02 is a series of 12 works exploring emotional states.
The exhibition also features one of Viola’s most ambitious installations, Five Angels for the Millennium 2001, a gallery full of video projections, accompanied by a mysterious and expansive landscape of sound.
