EVENTS: JANUARY ART LAUNCH DAY

19 Jan 2019 | 2.00pm - 4.00pm

In January, to kick off our massive 25th anniversary year, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is launching three fantastic exhibitions on Saturday, 19th of January 2019.


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.
