Artist talks: Long way around

THIS EVENT IS PART OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF APOLLO 11'S LANDING ON THE MOON. MORE DETAILS ABOUT MOON WEEK AT ANU IN JULY HERE

Students from ANU School of Art & Design discuss their work in the exhibition 'Long Way Around'. The students will speak about the processes and ideas behind their works made in response to Mt Stromlo Observatory.

'Long Way Around' is an exhibition of artwork by ANU School of Art & Design Printmedia and Drawing students made in response to visual, sensory, and conceptual elements of Mt Stromlo Observatory. The exhibition includes pieces that engage with the scientific research carried out on site; investigate concepts including light pollution, space junk and meteorites; consider the effect of fire damage on the landscape and architecture; and evoke experiential qualities of sound, light and nature. Through prints, drawings, sculptural, light and sound-based works, it presents a diverse range of approaches to exploring space through art.

This event is in partnership with ACT Government.
