A collaboration between QL2 Centre for Youth Dance and the National Gallery of Australia.
At National Gallery of Australia, Parkes Place, Canberra, Australia
Join us for a very different tour — a dance performance moving through the international art collection.
EXHIBITIONISM brings together a diverse group of young dance artists from around the country mentored by leading Australian choreographer Brian Lucas.
Working alongside a creative team of composers and Gallery staff, they have explored the gallery, responded to artworks from within its collection, and reflected on their personal experiences of “the viewing of art”.
EXHIBITIONISM is the result of their explorations and experimentations, a site-specific performance that moves throughout the gallery, revealing unique perspectives on the very personal and individual act of viewing.
EXHIBITIONISM is about the human experience within Gallery spaces, about the interface between artworks and viewers, and about the ways in which the lines between the viewer and the viewed are sometimes blurred.
Alyce Jasmine Farrell, Natalie Abbott, Elanor Webber, Laura Fishwick, Ebony Wright, Rudi Bremer, Gareth Hart, Yahna Fookes and Chimene Steele-Prior, with Artistic Director Brian Lucas and composers Nicholas Ng and Warwick Lynch.
Tours start 11am, 12 noon, 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 September.
No booking required, but numbers are limited on each tour.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
