Von Vintage, according to Mark, showcases the keepsakes of the past as remembered through the eyes of a dying media.
“It’s an effort to preserve the beauty in objects that once were so common place, now slowly finding their ways into op-shops and land fill,” he said. “Using old vintage film cameras, the images appear almost timeless – they could have been shot half a century ago or yesterday.”
The exhibition will be at Urban Grind, 121 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington. From November 27th until December 10th. If you’ve not yet been to Urban Grind then this is your opportunity to sample the great atmosphere and check out this great photographic exhibition.
Tomorrow night (Friday) will be the opening night for the third Seven with Another exhibition at Substation No 4. As with the previous exhibitions, seven creative types have been paired off with a contrasting and/or complimentary counterpart who is an expert in a different field. Each pair responds to a brief to come up with a conceptual piece of art that forms part of the exhibition. In the past this has ranged from interactive, illuminated sculptures to more traditional, beautifully crafted artworks.
THIRD: Seven with Another creatives include:
Alex Chomicz (film director) + Cezary Stulgis (sculptor)
Colleen Morgan (interaction designer) + Kate Stein (stylist)
Dane Middleton (sound designer) + Kirsty Boyle (robotics artist)
Igor Coric (animator) + Jesse Smith (photographer)
Kitty Horton (illustrator) + Patrick Ozmin (architectural graduate)
Maria Cleary (designer/maker) + Ralph Barnett (art-director)
Riki Salam (indigenous artist) + Steve Minon (copywriter)
If you can’t make it along on Friday, the exhibition is open from Saturday 8 October to Friday 14 October.
“During the work, you have to be sure that you haven’t left any holes, that you’ve captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson
‘Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Man, The Image and The World’ celebrates the life and work of French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004), one of the most influential artists in the history of 20th century photography.
This major retrospective exhibition features some of the most famous and powerful work from the renowned photographer’s extraordinary career, which spanned over 70 years.
‘The Man, The Image and The World’ showcases some of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s most acclaimed images including iconic moments in history and intimate insights into everyday life in America, Mexico, China, Japan, Bali, India, Europe and the USSR, and portraits of many of his contemporaries in the fields of art, literature and philosophy.
This exhibition is exclusive to Brisbane from 27 August – 27 November 2011. Make sure you see it before it is too late. For more information visit Queensland Art Gallery
I’ve just discovered that the art project ‘Papergirl‘, is happening in Brisbane! Papergirl Brisbane is a project produced by For Us By Us, that involves artists of all varieties submitting their artwork and having it delivered to the public. The art is not curated or filtered, it is just rolled up into bundles of three and delivered to the people the old fashioned way, paperboy style. Anyone can submit art to the project and it can be any kind of art including prints, photos, drawings, paintings, zines, creative writing, textiles and stickers. The only requirement is that it is flexible enough to be rolled up.
The artwork will be displayed at White Canvas gallery and opening night will be 3 February 2012. Then the next day the official Papergirl Artwork distribution will commence! And if you’re lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, you might pick up some free art!
If you are a fan of Gustav Klimt (which I am) then it is safe to say that you will probably be a fan of Abigael Whittaker. Similarly to Klimt, this Brisbane based artist combines dimensional figures with whimsical patterns, however, her works have a more natural, flowing, illustrative quality to them. Whittaker combines collage, gouache, graphite pencil and watercolour to explore themes of fractured innocence and abandonment of naïve trust, in her latest exhibition ‘Stones, bones and a pocketful of storm clouds.’ Be sure to check these beautiful tactile pieces at Jugglers Art Space, which will be displayed until 28th November.
The Wanderlust 333 Exhibition has started and is on for 33 days. The exhibition showcases the work of 33 new artists/designers/illustrators from around the world. Best of all you can own your favourite piece for as little as $6.20AU (3GBP) for the smallest size.
