NEW AGE: NEW MEDIA, 2011

The project was conducted in collaboration with the Director, Digital Art China, Wang Bo Qiao.

 The exhibition was a major feature of the Imagine Australia program, which celebrated the Year of Australian Culture in China, administered and supported by the Australian Embassy, Beijing. It was shown at a range of public venues in both China and Australia.

The 13 artists, representing both China and Australia through contemporary moving image art, were: Richard Bell, Merilyn Fairskye, The Kingpins, Jess MacNeil, James Newitt, Grant Stevens,  Bu Hua, Han Bing, Miao Xiaochun, Shen Shaomin, Tsekal / Yak Tseten, Zhang Xiaotao

NEW AGE: NEW MEDIA, was conceived to question assumptions about cultural difference. The project provides an avenue for the audience to interpret multiple realities and to identify, personally and socially with the situations present in the art works.

The artists reveal a real diversity in the ways they explore the concept of social environments, in particular the relationships between the values, beliefs and behaviours of people and the environments in which they live.
