EVENTS: JANUARY ART LAUNCH DAY
19 Jan 2019 | 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Our first suite of exhibitions gives us a glimpse into the finest moments of musical history through the eyes of rockstar photographer Tony Mott. We're also giving audiences a fascinating perspective of Indonesia, one of Australia's closest regional neighbours through video works by Indonesian-Australian artist Jumaadi and looking here looking north, an exhibition that features works by Woven, a collective of artists who have continuing personal connections to Indonesia.
A new iteration of What a Life! Rock Photography by Tony Mott is coming to Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre from the State Library of NSW.
Indonesian-Australian artist Jumaadi presents video works that draw on traditional Indonesian theatre called Wayang Kulit with both traditional and contemporary imagery using light and shadow.

The exhibition centres around themes of identity, memory and cross-cultural experiences, explored through performance, painting, installation, photography, video and sculpture.
