PICK OF THE WEEK: Controlled Spontaneity: Interview with Cai Guo-Qiang
Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang has been making his signature gunpowder works for over 20 years. But his new exhibition, “Falling Back to Earth”at Brisbane’s Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, is surprisingly devoid of spectacle. Instead, the works on view seem contemplative rather than celebratory, many of them exploring issues relating to the environment. Upon his arrival down under last week, ArtAsiaPacific spoke with Cai about this change in emphasis.
