In China - 1989 to Now: Immersive 360-degree Panoramas
The history of the 360-degree painted panorama dates back to the late 1700s and faded from popularity after the invention of cinema. Yet in China, this art form began in 1989 and continues to flourish on a massive scale, adopting the technologies of our time along the way. Miss Sara Velas, President of the International Panorama Council (www.panoramacouncil.org) and Founder of the Velaslavasay Panorama (www.panoramaonview.org), will present this lecture as an overview of 20th & 21st century panoramas in Asia with a focus on the panoramas of China.
A post-lecture reception will be held in the gardens of the Velaslavasay Panorama along with ambient classical Chinese music performed by Sushien Chang.
Advance reservations for this event are highly recommended.
Enjoy the gardens and exhibits of the Velaslavasay Panorama before and after each lecture where informal conversations with lecturers are held after every event. This presentation is part of the Velaslavasay Panorama's ongoing series, In A Time And Place. The series highlights peripheral phenomena related to the arts that has temporally occurred around the world.
