Showcasing the work of an exciting new generation of unrepresented artists in association with public and independent contemporary art spaces from around Australia, the Project Rooms create opportunities for developing artists to present innovative and experimental work within the context of a major international visual art event.
Extended Conversation Pieces brings together conversations about art, and conversation as art. The exhibition features collaborative works by six emerging Brisbane artists; Catherine or Kate (Catherine Sagin and Kate Woodcroft), Scott Ferguson (Erika Scott and Brooke Ferguson) and Courtney Coombs and Caitlin Franzmann. These artists engage with ideas of contemporary feminism through processes of dialogue and exchange; exploring subjectivity, humour and intimacy in performance and installation works.
