Light moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art
National Gallery of Australia

Light moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art is a major travelling exhibition of new media work by some of Australia’s leading artists.
Light moves presents seven major works by contemporary Australian artists which explore the possibilities of the body in video.
Each work is an example of great contemporary storytelling, made by the leading proponents of the video form in Australia.
Drawing on work acquired over the last three years for the National Collection, Light moves provides a neat and highly accessible survey of contemporary video practice in this country.
As well as being deeply engaging, the experience of this work is also contemplative.
Light moves includes projected and screen-based works which show the body performing in a range of real and imagined spaces.
