When we say that you should look down on the Gallery of Modern Art's latest exhibition, we're not being critical. The way that Limitless Horizon: Vertical Perspective wants you to gaze at it is all there in its name. Well, rather, the viewpoint it adopts is trumpeted in its title: the vertical, the vertiginous and the vertigo-inducing.
In a series of pieces focusing on urban and rural landscapes alike, this free showcase examines the way that we explore our environment from a vertical perspective. Expect a collection of works that'll make you feel like you're floating at a great height or staring off into the sunset — or, in an array spanning historical paintings from China and Japan, Indigenous Australian art, war time aerial photography, video art, prints and more, both.
The exhibition runs from August 26 to March 25, with a screening program joining the line up in March 2018.
