If you missed any of the talks in the Power Institute Sydney Asia Art Series you can listen again online.

Exploring the intersections of Art and Environment in public lectures, workshops and roundtables, the 2021 Sydney Asian Art Series, began with Patrick Flores exploring sculpture as environmental engagement in the work of Philippine artist Junyee; next, Furuhata Yuriko revisited the ecological dilemma of Metabolist architecture and the petro-economy in postwar Japan; then Sugata Ray delved into animal-human encounters through a 17th century Mughal painting of a turkey. Lastly, Wu Mali shared a series of her environmental, community projects in Taiwan which combine art practice, collaborative research, curation and pedagogy.

Thanks must again go to our partners VisAsia, the China Studies Centre and Art Gallery NSW.
