Join Geraldine Kirrihi Barlow, Curatorial Manager of International Art, for an introduction to the second chapter of 'A World View', the exhibition celebrating artworks acquired through the generous benefaction of Tim Fairfax, AC. A major highlight of the new iteration is a new commission by leading international light artist Anthony McCall titled Crossing 2016, secured for the QAGOMA Collection with Mr Fairfax's support. Crossing 2016 reflects McCall's many years developing 'solid light sculptures', in which white light is projected through dark, haze-filled spaces. This experiential work encourages visitors to step into shafts of intersecting light and be encompassed by the sound of breaking waves.
