Lauren Simpson @ The Loovre

OPENING NIGHT: 6-9pm Friday 9th December 2016
Exhibition continues until Monday 19th December 2016

The Loovre has become an innovative space at Jugglers which will for a few weeks be filled with contemporary female portraits by Lauren Simpson. Using paint mediums such as gouache and acrylic on wood panel, the paintings depict ethereal, stylised versions of reality and self.

The ideas we hold about ourselves is not always construed on our exterior to other people, but through art the physical representation we believe we should hold can be manifested. The paintings communicate themes of beauty standards, mental health awareness and self-belief when it comes to creative opportunities.

Ben Landers: Vacationer

Opening: December 9th 2016, 6-9pm

Vacationer runs until December 21st 2016.

Vacationer is a small exhibition of paintings and sculptures produced by Ben Landers over the past 10 years. Images of mainstream pastimes, such as mini-golf, video games and table tennis, feature in many of these works coupled with a home-grown aesthetic characteristic of skate culture. As an artist who often uses materials and techniques commonly labelled as ‘craft’, Landers plays within the space between, and questions notions of, official and unofficial culture.

A catalogue essay by Joseph Breikers accompanies the exhibition.

Corpse Verone: From the Darkness

  • Jugglers Art Space Inc

The darkness is infinite.

Within the darkness imagination is unbound.

What lurks in the dark are projections of our own psyche, reflections of our hidden Self.

It is here we can fashion our wildest dreams or ultimate horror.

Out of the dark we fashion ourselves.

 

From the Darkness is one artist’s excursion into the darkness in an attempt to interpret those illusive things that lurk behind the light.

 

Opening night Friday 25 November 6pm - 9pm

Exhibition runs from 24 November - 7 December 2016

Reframed Collective: A Persistent Illusion

  • Jugglers Art Space Inc.

Our exhibition title, ‘A Persistent Illusion’, is derived from a quote by Albert Einstein, who believed that “reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one”.

While the world around us may appear solid, logical and linear, the personal reality we each experience is anything but. At certain moments, the intersection of our personal reality and our external reality gives rise to an unusual sensation of unreality, in which the illusion of a cohesive reality seems to waver (daydreams, déjà vu, etc). For this year’s exhibition, each artist was invited to explore these moments of unreality, as well as interrogating broader notions of reality from both an individual and conceptual viewpoint.

Drawing Breath: Leonie Chinn

  • Jugglers Art Space

The human subject, in states of spiritual exaltation, expansion and contraction, is the primary object of fascination in these larger scale drawings and paintings. 

Combining elements of gestural, tonal and figure describing contour drawing, the works explore art making as a devotional practice, expressed through the metaphors of drawing breath and drawing near. 

The exhibition will continue until 28 September with the gallery open between 10am and 4pm daily.

Please join me on the opening night of my first solo exhibition.

Andrew Todd: Detailed Highlights and Rich Blacks

  • Jugglers Art Space

An exhibition that explores both the aesthetic qualities of objects and contrasting forms as well as the unique compositional interplay that are revealed through the very nature of darkroom processes.

A key focus throughout the exhibition is the observation of shape and how simplistic form, within the darkroom context can highlight the hidden aesthetic and challenge how we interpret meaning behind those objects and shapes.

The exhibition will showcase abstract photogram arrangements along with contrasting film photography from Western Queensland.

Exhibition from 8-14th of September 2016

Vena Cava: Fresh Blood Theatre Festival

  • Jugglers Art Space

Why make art? It’s competitive; it’s time consuming; there’s no job security; there’re no entry-level positions on Seek; there’re no entry-level positions on Gumtree; you won’t make enough money to live in New York; you won’t make enough money for pea coats and you definitely won’t make enough money to be a drug addict but stay fashionable.

The 2016 Fresh Blood Festival wants you to answer that question, and to have the audacity to do something about it. At the heart of Vena Cava’s ethos of giving artists a safe space to be anything but safe is Fresh Blood: a festival of student theatre, art and culture. With the gap ever widening between amateur and professional theatre, we as students have a choice. We can try and worm our way into the cramped box of government-funded art, or we can revel in moneyless, jobless freedom.

Fresh Blood Festival 2016 makes without mandate, speaks its mind, offends and excites and creates and destroys.

July 27th - 29th
