Great Barrier Reef Underwater Museum
Jason deCaires Taylor is drawing closer to the installation of his latest and most ambitious underwater art project to date: MOUA, the Museum Of Underwater Art, within the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
The new museum will feature a series of galleries located throughout Townsville, Magnetic Island, Palm Island and the Great Barrier Reef region.
The first galleries are due to open to the public in December 2019.
For the first time, the artist will combine a range of intertidal and fully submerged artworks, including pioneering large-scale architectural installations and sculptural works that change in response to the environmental conditions.
The museum aims to encourage environmental awareness, increase knowledge of marine ecosystems and help instigate social change while leading visitors to appreciate the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. The sculptures will convey vital messages about the threats to oceanic marine systems and our deep-rooted dependency on the sea.
