ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Outdoor public art festival adds light and art to natural wonders in Brisbane botanic gardens” – below is their description.
As the sun sets over Brisbane tonight, the city’s botanic gardens will be lit up by a series of dazzling artworks that transform the riverside into a sprawling outdoor gallery.
Botanica – Contemporary Art Outdoors showcases the work of nine leading and emerging Australian artists.
The interactive exhibits, large-scale projections and installations take inspiration from the natural landscape and capitalise on the popularity of outdoor art during the coronavirus crisis.
Botanica executive producer Bella Ford described it as the “perfect antidote to the year we’ve had, isolated from social experience and cultural experiences”.
“The themes this year range from climate change to human emotion, and of course touch on some of the lived experience that we’ve had over this past year through the global pandemic,” she said.
