‘Embodied Knowledge’ is a focused survey of new work by Queensland artists. This group of commissioned and recent projects brings to the fore the voices of women, people of colour and LGBTIQA+ artists, all with a close connection to the sunshine state.
It includes a vast installation of new paintings by Jenny Watson; a towering work by Erika Scott comprising fishtanks and found objects; a series of textural tributes to traditional rainforest shields by Girramay artist Ethel Murray; and a major new commission on the Watermall by Archie Moore. Also featured are new commissions and recent work by Robert Andrew, James Barth, Janet Burchill & Jennifer McCamley, Megan Cope, Léuli Eshrāghi, Caitlin Franzmann, Heather Koowootha, Callum McGrath, Meuram Murray Island Dance Group, Ryan Presley, Obery Sambo, Vanghoua Anthony Vue, Rosie Ware, Warraba Weatherall and Justene Williams.
‘Embodied Knowledge’ reveals the current dynamic state of creativity in Queensland, with artists responding to the diverse personal, political and social experiences of our time.
