News – Launching the free MCA ePublication app for iPad

Posted on Dec. 20, 2012 View Comments

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is excited to launch the iPad specific app MCA Publications today. This app will host the MCA’s digital publications, beginning with the exhibition catalogue Anish Kapoor.

Anish Kapoor has created some of the most memorable artworks of our times. Since the early 1980s, he has produced bodies of work that push the boundaries of sculpture through an exploration of the nature of perception in relation to space, form and mass.

This publication explores Kapoor’s work through the prism of his current exhibition at the MCA. The MCA’s Manager, Digital Media Keir Winesmith describes the publication as a “living catalogue”. The preview version includes video interviews, writing, documentation of exhibited works and behind the scenes footage of Kapoor’s studio. “Crucially,” Winesmith says, “this publication will be updated with interviews, images and videos of one of the most complex installations attempted by the Museum, and then updated again with reflections on the experience of the exhibition itself. It’s three publications rolled into one, made possible by an innovative digital publishing platform and the cooperation of Anish Kapoor’s studio.”
