CONTEMPORARY QUEENSLAND

M

odern art is often baffling for many people but a new

series of exhibitions will not only show a cross section of

works from Queensland artists, it will also give an insight

to the art itself in a range of talks, panel discussions and tours.

Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art

(QAGOMA) director Chris Saines and his colleagues Peter

McKay and Bruce McLean have curated the first GOMA Q:

Contemporary Queensland Art exhibition which opens on 11 July.

It will include the works of more than 30 artists ranging in ages

and experience, from emerging talents to established practitioners

with international reputations.

According to Saines, it is the gallery’s first broad survey of

current contemporary Queensland art practice. “It is a chance

for us to focus our attention on the art being created across

Queensland and the exhibition will give gallery visitors a deeper

understanding of the Queensland art scene,” he says.

Works, including Monica Rohan’s

Jumble

(

pictured above

),

cover the spectrum of expression from painting, sculpture and

photography to video, performance and installation, while themes

explore everything from the lives of ordinary Australians to

political dialogue and cultural tension. The works of senior artists

such as Davida Allen, Ian Friend and Gordon Shepherdson will

be complemented by new media works, video work by David

Thomas and collaborative duo Clark Beaumont and works

across the generations of Indigenous artists. Michael Zavros and

photographer Kim Guthrie will be featured along with many more.

On the opening weekend there will be guided curator walks

with Peter McKay and Bruce McLean through the exhibition and

artists will offer their perspectives of practising their craft. On 20

and 27 August Radio National presenters Sarah Kanowski and Paul

Barclay will host panel discussions about how art defines us and

more. Exhibition and events are free. See

ART ON THE WILD SIDE

is a diversion for the kids,

designed with the digital generation in mind. While it’s pitched

at three to 12-year-olds our group of digital savvy 10-year-

olds whipped through the on-screen activities in minutes.

They liked the Jungle Book scenes viewed on a big screen in

different languages as they were studying languages at school

and the Persian for Kids activity using Farsi script to create

an animal figure also captured their attention. Meanwhile

our four-year-old ‘reviewer’ was totally absorbed with the

on-screen activities for the duration of the visit, a feat on any

excursion. Art on the Wild Side, Children’s Art Centre, GOMA,

South Bank until 11 October 2015.
