Contemporary Australian Video Art Showcased in Rhodes

29 November 2017 | Recreation & Culture

The community is invited to visit a unique collection of video art from Sydney and beyond through a partnership between City of Canada Bay and Artbank using the digital gallery at The Connection, Rhodes says Mayor Angelo Tsirekas. 

For four weeks, visitors to The Connection, Rhodes will be transported to a world of contemporary art through moving pictures. The handpicked collection features stunning hand-drawn animation, sublime moving landscapes, and elaborate synchronised swimming performances. 

Work from video artists such as David Capra, Daniel Crooks, Todd Fuller, Tina Havelock Stevens, Charlotte Haywood, and Lisa Sammut has been loaned from Artbank to be displayed in the gallery until Friday, 22 December.

“It’s an honour to bring acclaimed Australian contemporary video art to our community,” says City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas. “The Connection, Rhodes is a $21 million state-of-the-art venue that we’re extremely proud of. It attracts visitors from far and wide to admire unique exhibitions and events such as this one.” 

The Digital Gallery at the waterfront venue features a striking digital art presentation wall with eight large screen LCD panels, an AV presentation projection wall, and an integrated sound system. 

The Connection, Rhodes officially opened in January 2017 and is fast building a reputation for holding cutting edge technology workshops, seminars and exhibits, such as this. The community precinct consists of four integrated areas: The Learning Space (e-library), Meeting Space, Event Space and the privately run Bare Witness Restaurant.
