After being reimagined as a dynamic after-dark exhibition for Rising Festival, Chinatown's Golden Square Carpark is once again set to moonlight as a multi-storey pop-up art gallery. This time, it's coming alive with a cacophony of sound, light and visuals for a multi-sensory experience by renowned digital artists, Artists in Motion.

Running daily from Thursday, September 1–Sunday, October 2, Wisdom & Light explores the life, work and teachings of Venerable Master Hsing Yun; famed Buddhist monk and founder of international Buddhist organisation Fo Guang Shan.

As you make your way through the precinct's upper levels and rooftop space, you'll find yourself wandering amongst lush green forests, wild ocean storms and centuries old villages, all brought to life by immersive visual projections and soundscapes. Featured throughout will be striking displays of ancient calligraphy, capturing one of Hsing Yun's lifelong practices.

And if you're feeling peckish after your art immersion? The exhibition will also play host to the Wisdom & Light Vegetarian Café — a meat-free pop-up eatery helmed by a former Nobu Melbourne head chef.
