Electric Canvas at the National Gallery

Dark and Mysterious 10 October 2007 4

Has anyone seen the light display at the National Gallery?  Apparently it is called ‘Electric Canvas’ and is on from 6 – 10 until the 15th, and there will be projections of ‘famous works of art’ on two sides of the building.

I rang the NGA but they didn’t have a lot of details – has anyone had a look?  Can they advise where best to view it?  The NGA didn’t even know which sides of the building it was going to be projected on!

Any advice very welcome!

A press release from the NGA states the following:

“Commencing at 8 pm on tonight, Tuesday 9 October the Gallery will come alive with a lighting presentation featuring iconic works of art projected on the building façade.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the National Gallery of Australia’s official opening by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 12 October 1982 and an exciting program of exhibitions and events have been planned to celebrate the anniversary year. The lighting presentation which launches the celebrations will be shown nightly from 6 pm to 12 am until 15 October.”

ABC TV’s Stateline filmed last night – the images are projected all around the front and left hand side of the building ( around the entrance ) – they are stunning.

Thanks Betty!

Someone told me there is something in today’s CT (I only get it on the weekends). Sounds worth checking out!

A workmate recommended it, she saw it last night ans she said it was stunning.

I think it may be on the walls near that big black and red sculpture? Haven’t been there myself so I can’t be sure.
