WCEI QLD – Women Chiefs at Brisbane Festival 2022
September 11, 2022 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm
I am delighted to invite you to WCEI Queensland’s September event at Brisbane Festival 2022.
WCEI Queensland Committee Member Fabienne Cooke, who is Head of Philanthropy at Brisbane Festival, has generously organised this VIP experience for WCEI members and their guests.
Brisbane’s Art Boat returns for a celestial floating art experience featuring the work of internationally renowned visual artist Lindy Lee and performance by Vanessa Tomlinson.
The Spheres by Lindy Lee
Brisbane-born Lindy Lee is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. Lindy states that “The Spheres is a celebration of harmony and joy, a symphony of connection and inclusiveness that will entangle Brisbane’s community and breathe life into its sails”. Lindy brings her stunning installation aboard Brisbane’s Art Boat for a truly immersive, celestial art, light and sound experience. The Spheres takes its cue from Ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who speculated that celestial bodies caused vibrations as they coursed majestically through the heavens. Just as the vibrations of harp strings cause musical notes to reverberate, moons, stars and planets also reverberate to create harmonic sounds. Pythagoras termed this the ‘Music of the Spheres’.
Vanessa Tomlinson’s work is noted for exploring how sound shapes our lives, awakening our ears to new sounds, in new spaces. Her music making, which includes works on the tam-tam, is the perfect partner to Lindy Lee’s installation.
WCEI Members and Guests will be joined on Brisbane’s Art Boat by dignitaries and VIPs for this very special Brisbane Festival experience.
