News – The colourful world of Hiromi Tango

Posted on April 5, 2013 in Events.

On Wednesday 3 April 2013, the second Bella Room commission by artist Hiromi Tango was unveiled.

Bella is the MCA’s free program for people with specific needs, including physical, intellectual, emotional or behavioural disabilities. Each year a different artist is selected to create an interactive tactile installation for the Bella Room. For the second artwork commission the special needs focus is students with intellectual disabilities. Hiromi Tango’s colourful and playful Dance (2013) is an interactive and immersive environment comprising large-scale soft sculptural forms, sound and touch technology.

The launch featured special performances by Hiromi Tango and music ensemble The Sylvanbeats.

The MCA Bella programs were established in 1993 through the generosity of longstanding MCA patrons, Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, and the Jackson family, in memory of their late daughter and sister Belinda.
