| Exhibitions we will be opening include:
A major touring exhibition of contemporary sculpture, showcasing the works of 12 acclaimed Australian artists: Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Alex Seton, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, David Cross, Franz Ehmann, Karla Dickens, Keg de Souza, Michelle Nikou, Rosie Miller, Tim Sterling and Will French.
Many of the works in this exhibition take as their point of departure the human body: its dimensions, the spaces it occupies, the narratives that contain it and the theatre or spectacle that unfolds around it.Featuring a diversity of sculptural materials, techniques and scale, Safe Space explores different notions of space — abstract or real, physical, psychological, political, and social — to spark the viewer’s curiosity.
Safe Space is an initiative of Museums & Galleries Queensland developed in partnership with Logan City Council through Logan Art Gallery, and curated by Christine Morrow. This travelling exhibition is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland; the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory governments; and is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
Kerry Dunne: Unsettling beauty
This exhibition presents a body of work painted in response to the Kimberley by local artist Kerry Dunne. The forms and colours of the Kimberley are astounding, yet it is a place of extremes and the enormity of its space, the isolation and ruggedness, are unsettling. The ancient landscape confronts us with our insignificance and transience.
Kerry will be presenting an artist talk on the Saturday 10 Jul from 10.30am-11.30am. Bookings essential.
