Open Studio with Sam Harrison and Keemon Williams

Open Studio with Sam Harrison and Keemon Williams

Open Studio events give audiences a behind-the-scenes look at creative spaces across Brisbane. Join us for a cuppa and a yarn as we show you around their studio and discuss what drives their creativity and inspires their practice.

Sam Harrison is a Brisbane based artist with both Indigenous (Kamilaroi/ Wiradjuri) and English ancestry. His practice spans several different themes from identity, politics and history to memes and a desire to understand the function of humour. Each of these areas of inquiry sit within the complicated and ambiguous space that exists between First Nations and Colonial ways of being. In this space there are nuanced moments of contact, conflict and co-existence which have created stories that are often painful, sometimes funny, and always worth listening to.

Keemon Williams is a queer interdisciplinary Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist of Koa, Kuku Yalanji and Meriam Mir descent. He utilises a diverse range of mediums and performative elements to interrogate the relationships between location, personal histories and the manifestation of culture in a postcolonial world. His practice seeks to critically examine facets of his identity and its intrinsic tethering to the wider context of being “Australian.”
