About ‘Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth’
One of the most dramatic exhibitions ever held at GOMA, ‘Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth’ features four installations, including two newly commissioned works directly inspired by the landscapes of southeast Queensland. Cai Guo-Qiang is a leading international artist renowned for his large-scale installations and explosion events.
About the free Children’s Art Centre activities
Cai Guo-Qiang uses symbols as a way to connect people and places, even those on opposite sides of the world. Taking on the roles of artist and curator, children can create objects based on Cai Guo-Qiang’s work and build their own miniature exhibition by placing these paper objects in a display area within the Children’s Art Centre.
Screenings of ‘Let’s Create an Exhibition with a Boy Named Cai’ animated film
Follow Cai’s journey around the world — to China, Japan, Germany, Australia and other places — and see the artworks he creates, all inspired by the people he meets and the amazing things he sees and learns along the way.
Parents activities- Gongfu tea ceremonies
Visitors to Santos GLNG Sunday at GOMA can enjoy free tastings of cold-pressed Tie Guan Yin tea, a variety of oolong tea, within the ‘Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth’ exhibition. The tea is sourced from Anxi in Fujian province, China, the hometown of leading international artist Cai Guo-Qiang.
Eucalyptus Drawing Activity
