The MCA has launched the Final Edition of the Anish Kapoor e-publication.
In a world first, the publication is a ‘living catalogue’, evolving over the course of the exhibition, allowing the Museum to present the singular experience of the exhibition and its installation through interviews, photographs and videos recorded on site and in the Kapoor studio.
A traditional printed catalogue produced months ahead of an exhibition fails to capture the installation challenges and in situ exhibition.
The e-publication has unfolded in three steps: a preview, the installation and the exhibition itself.
The Preview Edition launched the day of the exhibition opening and focused on the breadth of Kapoor’s practice.
The Installation Edition explored the challenge of the exhibition installation through video interviews and documentation.
The Final Edition reflects on the Anish Kapoor exhibition, adding a series of different perspectives on the exhibition from curators, visitors and MCA staff.
This edition includes:
360º interactive panoramas that provide a unique way to experience the exhibition.
A video interview with Anthony Bond, former Head Curator of International Art and Director, Curatorial at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, talking about his experience of Anish Kapoor at the MCA.
First hand accounts from visitors to the exhibition as they describe their experience in the gallery.
MCA Digital Media Manager Keir Winesmith said: ‘Everything we do is about telling stories and sharing content and our digital experience is there to enhance this. We are presenting three publications rolled into one, made possible with an innovative digital publishing platform and the cooperation of Anish Kapoor’s studio.’
The e-publication is downloadable via the iPad specific MCA Publications app on iTunes.
