About this event

22 May - 1 August

Moon in a Dew Drop is an exhibition of the work of influential Australian Chinese artist Lindy Lee. Lee’s shimmering, meditative and thought-provoking works feature in this major national touring exhibition, which draws on her experience of living between two cultures.

Using a spectacular array of processes which include flinging molten bronze, burning paper and allowing the rain to transform surfaces, Lee draws on her Australian and Chinese heritage to develop works that engage with the history of art, cultural authenticity, personal identity and the cosmos. Key influences are the philosophies of Daoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism, which explore the connections between humanity and nature.

This exhibition will introduce audiences to works from across the artist’s extensive career, from early photocopy artworks, to her research into her family history and recent paintings and sculptures created using fire and water.

Curated by MCA Director, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE

Exhibition organised and toured by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
