Monkeystack were commissioned to produce an interactive 360 experience of the Atnwengerrp (pronounced A-NOONG-a-pa) exhibition for Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, allowing those who couldn’t physically attend to immerse themselves in the collection and browse the digitally captured and rehung artwork.

After almost seven months of forced closure due to the pandemic, Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute celebrated reopening its doors and 30th birthday celebrations with the exhibition ‘Atnwengerrp – Our Apmere, Our Place’. Providing a solution for those who couldn’t physically attend the exhibition had never been more relevant, Virtual Tandanya delivers the captivating qualities of an immersive gallery experience to people across South Australia, the region of Utopia and the rest of the world.

We augmented the space to give the viewer a sense of intimacy, the dark gallery space emphasised by the illuminated monochromatic artwork, digitally capturing the physical space’s specific lighting design. The experience allows users to interact with individual artworks to see the piece in high definition and text information including Artist profiles, specifics on the piece and the option to enquire for purchase, and is accompanied by a music experience created by Jimblah, an indigenous Australian hip hop artist from the Larrakia nation.
