A panel discussion with 8 of the artists in the 'Safe Space' exhibition and Curator, Christine Morrow, presented at Logan Art Gallery on 30 November 2018.
'Safe Space' is an initiative of Museums & Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD), developed in partnership with Logan City Council through Logan Art Gallery. The exhibition is being toured by Museums & Galleries Queensland to twelve venues nationally from 2018–2021.
Curated by Christine Morrow, 'Safe Space' showcases works by 12 acclaimed contemporary Australian artists: Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, David Cross, Keg de Souza, Karla Dickens, Franz Ehmann, Will French, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Rosie Miller, Michelle Nikou, Alex Seton and Tim Sterling.
The exhibition features many notions of space — abstract and real, physical, psychological, political and social. The title of the exhibition coaxes viewers to consider the ways the artworks engage the themes of safety and its lack; space in all its rich possibility and, perhaps unexpectedly, in all its difficulty.
This video was commissioned by M&G QLD, supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
