UWA Freedom Project Exhibition Catalogue

The University of Western Australia, which continues to be the higher education institution leading the way in the development and promotion of virtual artwork, has just announced the publication the exhibition catalogue for The Freedom Project, "an exhibition of original virtual art by artists and filmmakers with disabilities or chronic illness." Available as part of UWA's Studies in the Virtual Arts publication series, the catalogue can be viewed online here, but can also be ordered in hard copy from UWA (through UWA Virtual Worlds founder Jay Jay Jegathesan) for a fee of L$5,000, shipped anywhere in the world (and is free to participating artists).

The exhibition can, for a short time, still be viewed in person. Curator FreeWee Ling says, "The Freedom Project has been a profoundly moving and inspirational exhibition. It has gotten tremendous recognition in real life and promises to get a final boost with the publication of the journal. The works can still be viewed in the UWA gallery for the next couple of weeks, but will then be removed to make room for the Transcending Borders show already in progress. I strongly encourage everyone to see the show at UWA before it's gone. Pictures in a book are a great memento, but they can't compare to the 'real' thing."
