Artist Talk with James Mulholland

  • Jugglers Art Space 103 Brunswick Street Fortitude Valley, QLD, 4006 Australia

Local artist and 2015 Marie Ellis Finalist will talk about his latest body of work - Decoy, now exhibiting at Jugglers Art Space.

James Mulholland's practice investigates the ‘nocturnal self’ that exists inside the young Brisbane male. Examining its formative relationship with crime scenes and ‘hooliganism’ that are culturally inseparable from the nightlife in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, Mulholland produces large, graphic, drawn, re-interpretations of this imagery on paper. The authenticity of the young male “Deviant” that frequents in news worthy ‘crime narratives’ is placed under scrutiny and separated from his contemporary media driven myth. 

6-7pm Monday the 6th of June. All welcome. Bar open.
