About this event

ASIA PACIFIC VIDEO

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Touring Exhibition

Leichhardt Art Gallery, Wandoan Cultural Centre

Artists in the Asia-Pacific were quick to embrace the new possibilities of video art as it emerged as an art form, and the region is now home to some of the leading moving image artists in the world. From the most basic use of a hand-held video camera to elaborate and theatrical productions, video has also allowed artists throughout the region to explore and communicate their social conditions, cultures and ideas on ever-evolving screen-based platforms.

By performing for the camera, recording collective actions and experimenting with technologies and theatrical scenarios, the artists in this exhibition deliver a range of critical, humorous and magical insights into their own artistic motivations and the contexts in which they live and work. Through a wide-ranging series of encounters that manifest across the screen, they capture how the medium has become such a valuable form of expression for many of the region’s artists, defining new platforms where their voices and visions can come alive.
