Guan Wei: Other Histories
Back in stock soon.
Many will no doubt remember an amazing exhibition at the Powerhouse showcasing the work of Chinese-Australian artist Guan Wei. The exhibition inspired by the voyages of Ming dynasty admiral Zheng He and Guan Wei’s own journey of migration to Australia, combined Museum objects with large scale mural paintings, transforming the gallery into a ‘floating poetic corridor’.
Now a book has been published featuring images of Guan Wei at work and photos of the completed murals, as well as essays by Guan Wei, Powerhouse curator Claire Roberts, historian Geremie R. Barme, and award-winning novelist Alexis Wright. Other Histories has been described by art critic John McDonald as possibly ‘Guan Wei’s masterpiece’.
This handsome publication provides a lasting record of the exhibition and Guan Wei’s thought provoking collaboration with the Powerhouse Museum.Author: Clarie Roberts
