Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai
Upcoming is our contemporary art exhibition and event series Thirty-Seven Views of Fuji. Hokusai's famous centuries-old prints of Mount Fuji depict deep connections to a place, but can these feelings be evoked among modern urban landscape? Sydney-based artist Michael Garbutt documents his experiences in the exhibition and shares the contemplative art practice, 'sitting-as-art', in a talk and workshop. Exhibition opens January 20.
