NOW + WHEN: Australian Urbanism tour

December 8, 2010

The Australian exhibition from the Venice Biennale to tour Australia in 2011.

An exhibition featuring 3D stereoscopic images of Australian cities and mining pits will embark on a tour of Australia in March 2011, after drawing record crowds at the Venice Biennale.

The NOW + WHEN: Australian Urbanism exhibition attracted over 93,000 visitors during its three-month run in Venice – an increase of 60 percent in visitor numbers to the Australian Pavilion. The exhibition features images in new 3D stereoscopic technology, which allows patrons to move between scenes of urbanised environments to experience them from various perspectives.

Created by photographer and Co-Creative Director John Gollings, the ‘Now’ component of the exhibition is a six minute sequence of 3D aerial images of Melbourne, Sydney and Surfers Paradise, contrasted with images of giant mining pits in Kalgoorlie and Newman.

The ‘When’ section, created by Co-Creative Director Ivan Rijavec, features propositions from 17 architectural collaborations of what Australian urban spaces could be like in 50 years. The nine-minute sequence displays images of the ideas, which include submerged cities, floating cities and desert spaces.

NOW + WHEN: Australian Urbanism will be showcased at the Gold Coast City Gallery from 26 March- 1 May 2011, before being displayed at Sydney’s Object: Australian Centre for Craft and Design between 2 July and 25 September 2011. Additional locations and dates will be added to the tour in coming months.
