Visual Art Program 2012

2012 Visual Art Program - Triangulate

Triangulate presents an exhibition formulated around a synthesised approach to curating. The triangulation principle proposes that the ‘exhibition as situation’ functions with three components: the artworks, the organisation of these artworks, and the audience. Each component relies on the other, and without one component the exhibition situation cannot exist at all. Each component is in active dialogue with the other – thus leveling the importance of the artwork, curator, and audience. The triangulation approach is of particular relevance to the context of a festival, with its widely varying audience, and a survey of works chosen from an open call. A trio of common threads are to be found across the show: the notion of mapping, a sense of fantasy, and a concern for re-visiting. This exhibition will make up the visual art component of the Brisbane Emerging Art Festival 2012, curated by Tess Maunder and Laura Brown.


The exhibition will be held 18 February – 24 February 2012. The opening will be 6-10pm on Saturday 18 February, MetroArts is open Mon-Fri 10am- 4.30pm, Sat 10am-5pm. There will be a panel discussion for the show held on Wednesday 22 February at 6pm with the curators: Tess Maunder and Laura Brown, and two artists from the show: Daniel McKewen and Julie-Anne Milinski. The panel will be chaired by Anna Zammit (The Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane).
