Presentism looks back at ten years of Boxcopy’s history, through the lens of current practices of Brisbane-based artists who have participated in the program over that time. The title of the exhibition describes a tendency to interpret past events in terms of modern values and concepts. While often used negatively to critique particular accounts of history, in this case looking at the past through practices of the present testifies to the qualities of resilience and endurance that serve to sustain the practices of individual artist and the communities in which they operate.

Join us for the opening event on Saturday 26th August and then for special events through September.

Homeground Forum Series

June 13, 2016


Join us for a series of forums during HOMEGROUND discussing artist run spaces and collectives in Brisbane.

Saturday 4 June, 4pm | Contested Spaces

Saturday 2 July, 4pm | Homeshow

Boxcopy was founded as a collaborative project by seven art school graduates in 2007 and initially operated from the basement of a Queenslander house in New Farm. This emphasis on the home and the local context are the themes of this project, and many current ARIs in Brisbane reflect this approach – they are often fluid, nomadic structures, with projects occurring in domestic spaces, hotel rooms, the street and public sites. Coming up to our ten year anniversary, Boxcopy is one of the longest running artist run spaces in Brisbane and for HOMEGROUND we aim to provide a conduit for these, and future, collaborations to take place.
