Folds of Belonging
Folds of Belonging is an exhibition of international contemporary art. The work aims to interrupt your daily life as you walk the busy streets and laneways of Brisbane City. Displaying the works of internationally celebrated artists, Fahd Burki (Pakistan), Motoyuki Daifu (Japan), Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thailand/USA), Shilpa Gupta (India) and Slavs and Tatars (Eurasia), the exhibition uses incidental encounters with these works to tackle questions surrounding one’s sense of belonging in a city.
The curator, Tess Maunder, has worked significantly in the Asia-Pacific region. She recently co-curated the 11th Shanghai Biennale, which included 92 artists from 40 countries with a projected visitation of 250,000. She has researched, published and curated many international projects.
The exhibition is accessible to the public at all hours, and uses Brisbane City Council’s Vibrant Laneways Outdoor Gallery sites including Eagle Lane, Fish Lane, King George Square Car Park and Hutton Lane.
