Artist Talk | Thursday 25 June 5.30pm
Closing Event & Performance | Saturday 4 July 6pm
ALONE TOGETHER is an exhibition that showcases works by four recent Queensland graduates – Karike Ashworth, Alrey Batol, Tayla Haggarty and Sancinyta Simpson. These artists are negotiating the complexities of voicing individual experiences and concerns, by drawing on the language and objects of the everyday. The exhibition also explores the importance of connectivity for artists in a climate of uncertainty.
Join us on Thursday 25 June from 5.30pm when Karike Ashworth, Alrey Batol and Sancintya Simpson will discuss their emerging art practices and new works in the exhibition. It is also an opportunity for them to gain feedback on their work, so come along and join the discussion.

Come along on Saturday 20th June for a special workshop with Gillian Fuller from Design and Art Australia Online (DAAO).
DAAO is the largest free research database on Australian art and design. It is connected with cultural datasets around the world and syndicates to the National Library of Australia’s Trove service. Adding records to DAAO means your information will be preserved, enhanced and, most importantly, freely accessible to all.
At Boxcopy we will be focusing on building profiles of Queensland artists, so choose an artist to ‘adopt’, and join us for the datasprint. Places are limited – email email@example.com to register and receive further information about the day.
ARTIST WORKSHOP | Jemima Wyman
Saturday 4 July 4pm
This is the first in a series of free professional development workshops by artists for artists at Boxcopy.
Jemima Wyman lives and works between Brisbane and Los Angeles. Her individual art practice incorporates installation, video, performance, photography and painting. Her most recent artworks utilise these mediums to specifically focus on visually based resistance strategies employed within protest culture and zones of conflict. These works aim to explore the formal and psychological potentiality of camouflage and masking in reference to collective identity. In this workshop Jemima will discuss her work, as well as challenges and strategies for sustaining a critically engaged art practice in an international context.
Jemima completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (in Visual Arts) with Honours at QUT. In 2007, she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from The California Institute of Arts in Los Angeles, made possible with the Anne and Gordon Samstag Scholarship.
Jemima has exhibited throughout Australia and internationally. Past exhibitions were held at Steve Turner Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne), Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Plimsoll Gallery (Hobart), 21st Century Museum of Art (Japan) and The Getty (Los Angeles). Jemima’s work has also been included as part of the 17th Biennale of Sydney, and in 2012, for Liverpool Biennial, she was commissioned by FACT to make Collective Coverings, Communal Skin. This large-scale project was generously supported by The Australia Council for the Arts, New Work Grant. In 2014 Jemima was commissioned by the Children’s Art Centre at GOMA to make Pattern Bandits. In 2005, she formed the collaborative duo, CamLab with Anna Mayer, and together they recently participated in the Engagement Party series at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
