Join us for the Exhibition Opening on Saturday, 4 December 2021, 2 – 4pm.
This FREE event will include a series of talks by the exhibiting artists, a performance by the Western Sydney Ballroom community and an invitation for audiences to jam with My Le Thi and Azo Bell using their artwork titled Gukoongboom. Gukoongboom is an interactive installation commissioned by Casula Powerhouse, featuring a tuned percussion instrument built from painted PVC pipes which reflects on My Le Thi’s memories of village life in the Vietnamese Central Highlands, where music was an essential part of the community.
About Jamming with Strangers:
What does it feel like to connect with people through music? Jamming with Strangers highlights music communities as spaces of intimacy, nourishment, and social connection. By focusing on these intimate relationships, the exhibition reveals the role creative communities play in influencing broader social cohesion.
