Date & time
Wed 9 Sep 2020 to Sun 31 Jan 2021
Add to Calendar 2020-09-09 10:00 2021-02-01 10:00 Australia/Brisbane Man & Wah: CELESTON 2 Man &amp; Wah’s creative practice is an attempt to inspire reconnection with the dimensions of nature and the cosmos, elements that greatly influence their creative work and lives. Their artworks are an invitation to slow down and reflect on the interconnectedness between humans and the universe in its micro and macro states. <em>CELESTON 2</em> extends on a video work Man &amp; Wah developed during Museum of Brisbane’s Artists @ Home residency program, during the COVID-19 lockdown in early 2020. It is a curated amalgamation of audio, video and photographic material centred on the cosmic and botanical worlds, drawn from the artists’ extensive catalogue created over the past seven years. The work was informed by Man &amp; Wah’s attempt to make sense of the unfolding global events and the mass flow of information that accompanied them. It examines how the past and present can mould ideas, beliefs and social structures, and how digital information is controlled to induce human reactions. This exhibition is part of the Ars Electronica 2020 Festival for Art, Technology &amp; Society.  Times: 10am-5pm daily, 10am-7pm Fridays Museum of Brisbane, Brisbane City Hall, 64 Adelaide Street, Brisbane City
