The City Lights program engages local and national artists to create large-scale projection and multimedia installations and depicts the culture, history and lifestyle of Tropical North Queensland, transforming spaces into outdoor galleries of pictures, sound and light.

Mix Tape has been developed collaboratively between AGB Events and artist Vanghoua Anthony Vue. The digital artwork re-interprets Vue’s ‘tape-affitis’, tape-based installations.

The work reflects the artist’s experiences growing up in Cairns and the complexities of his Hmong-Australian heritage, drawing on Vue’s experiences during cyclone seasons, the tropical surrounds, the do-it-yourself approach, the resilience of Vue’s parents and the push and pull of language, culture, identity and place.

AGB Events are specialists in creating public celebrations, innovative experiences and 3D artworks that are responsive to place, audiences, local stories and culture.

This collaborative artwork adds a new dimension to Vanghoua Anthony Vue’s work, bringing it to life while sharing with a fresh audience.

It will be running from 7pm to 11pm August 24 to September 2 at the Cairns City Library on Abbott Street.
