From Monday August 10 to Sunday November 22, experience Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery RAZZLE DAZZLE exhibition. The eye-catching displays, as well as a number of talks, tours and engagements, have been curated by Amy-Clare McCarthy and Kieran Swann.
RAZZLE DAZZLE considers the nature of public space and individuals within it – particularly people who for different reasons, may feel hyper-visible or invisible. Considering ideas of identity, spectacle, and camouflage, the artists included use patterning, colour, or adornment to either hide, exaggerate, or transform. It features artworks from artists Richard Bell, Eric Bridgeman, Hannah Gartside, Gerwyn Davies, Chantal Fraser, Rachael Haynes, Natalya Hughes, Luke Roberts, Jemima Wyman, Justin Shoulder and Bhenji Ra.
Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane’s laneways and city streets into imaginative, curious and engaging spaces. Comprising light boxes, banners, vitrines and evening projections, the Outdoor Gallery displays art outside in city streets, instead of inside on gallery walls. Recently, the Outdoor Gallery has grown to now include art projections at Howard Smith Wharves.
RAZZLE DAZZLE has popped up in various Brisbane CBD locations – including Fish Lane, Eagle Lane and Edward Street – and will be on display until Sunday November 22.
