Open Studio

08 Jun 2019 – 24 Jan 2021
QAG | Pelican Lounge | Free

Visit Open Studio for insights into the creative practice of five contemporary Australian artists. For four months at a time, each artist has been invited to share their studio practice and provide insights into how they work:

  • Artist Space: Look around the Open Studio and pick up clues about how the artist experiments, manipulates and refines materials and processes.
  • Artist Gallery: Visit the adjacent Open Studio display to discover a mind map of connections, inspiration and ideas made up of artworks selected by the artist from the QAGOMA Collection. Each reveals a story about the artist’s work and life.
  • Artist Videos: Get to know each Open Studio artist by watching artist interviews and viewing the artist’s studio through three dimensional photography.
  • Artist Tutorials: Take part in two art station drawing activities specific to the artist’s practice.
