Kimbra. By Vincent Fantauzzo Archibald Finalist 2012



2012 Archibald Finalist.  http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/prizes/archibald/2012/29228/

The painting of Kimbra had an embedded QR code attached to the painting so that viewers could "listen" to the painting.  The embedded video has had almost 1Million views during and since the Archibald exhibition.  The painting has a multi media identity, where Art has embraced social media.  Talking with a few people during the Archibald exhibition this embedding within a work of art is likely to become more prevalent / acceptable.

  1. Cool, Didn't even know Kimbra was a subject in the Archibald, let alone the QR code link, even cooler. I bought Kimbra's album for JB a few months back. Well worth a listen.
    Cheers,
