Safe Space: contemporary sculpture
27 April - 9 June 2019
Safe Space is an exhibition of three-dimensional works by twelve contemporary Australian artists concerned with space in both its physical and psychological sense, curated by Christine Morrow. Many of the works have social, and sometimes political, resonances and take as their point of departure: the human body, its dimensions, the spaces it occupies, the narratives that contain it and the theatre or spectacle that unfolds around it. Artists featured in the exhibition are: Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, David Cross, Keg de Souza, Karla Dickens, Franz Ehmann, Will French, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Rosie Miller, Michelle Nikou, Alex Seton, Tim Sterling.
Safe Space is an initiative of Museums & Galleries Queensland developed in partnership with Logan City Council through Logan Art Gallery, and curated by Christine Morrow. This travelling exhibition is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland; the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory governments; and is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
