Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) Announces “GIANT LEAP”

To mark the 50-year anniversary of one of the biggest achievements in human history, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) has announced the full program for “GIANT LEAP,” a multi-arts program of events and exhibitions, kicking off on July 20, 2019.“We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the full line-up of exhibitions and events for our massive moon landing program!” said CPAC Director Craig Donarski. “A whole suite of incredible exhibitions exploring a dizzying array of lunar perspectives, interplanetary live music performances, and a dazzling show from a renowned David Bowie tribute artist are just the tip of the iceberg.”The program will provide multiple access points for the local community to engage with in relation to the anniversary and capture the excitement of that global event. The program also seeks to provide an opportunity for the cross-community, cross-cultural, intergenerational, and future thinking dialogues.The press release informs that the Liverpool Regional Museum will also present “ONE SMALL STEP (June 22- September 7), a re-creation of the Hilton Space Lounge from Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” The immersive experience will blend original NASA footage interspersed with #1 hit singles and record sleeve artwork from July 20, 1969, from countries around the globe.Visitors can look forward to live performances from veteran Australian experimental musician Garry Bradbury and cosmic electronica band Dweeb City, and a presentation by Sydney-based experimental musician Jaimie Leonarder; unveil truths with astrology readings, and enjoy an enthralling moon-viewing session with the Macarthur Astronomical Society.On view will be the exhibition, “Memories of the Moon Landing” (July 1- August 25). This exhibition component considers memories of the 1969 Moon Landing and Australia’s involvement at the time from multiple perspectives. The local community of Liverpool City comes from 150 countries around the world (many of who lived elsewhere in the world in 1969) and their memories will capture the global nature of the event. These local memories, captured on video by Curiousworks are interspersed with NASA photographs and footage.There’s also “High Loom” (July 1- September 1), an exhibition that showcases the monumental installation by Lisa Sammut, which reflects on the movement and interaction of celestial bodies in space.
