Although we think every month should be surrounded with arts and culture, the real excitement is building up for Art Month Sydney 2012 which begins on the 1st March and ends on the 25th March. This annual festival combines the like of all things artistic and contemporary. Such events throughout the festival include guided walking tours (or cycling if you prefer), exhibitions and — our favourite — Art Bars. Art Month Sydney will bring together over 300 artists, 200 events and 100 exhibitions. And You, if you’d like to be involved too:
Queen Street Studio will be part of Art Month Sydney in a number of ways, with an event here at FraserStudios called “Uncollectable Art” on Sunday 11 March from 2-3pm.
Some of Australia’s most committed ‘uncollectable artists’ and artist-run collectives discuss what it that means to create art which cannot be bought. They explain why they are committed to such practise and the overall impact of ‘uncollectable art’ on the industry. Speakers include ex QSS-Resident Keg De Souza and Sarah Rodigari from Field Theory. Hosted by Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris, editor and director of Das Superpaper.
We’ve also got heaps of our previous QSS-Residents involved in solo and group shows. Mark these dates down in your diary:
- Inaugural Exhibition 6th March — 1st April, Galerie pompom. Featuring past QSS-Residents Leo Coyte and Charles Dennington,
- Because We Can 21st — 24th March, Kudos Gallery. Featuring past QSS resident Tully Arnot.
- Harriet Body solo show 27th February –31st March, Branch 3D Gallery.
