Approximately every four years, M&G QLD develops its own touring exhibition to fill gaps within the national touring exhibition circuit, informed by extensive industry consultations with its Queensland constituency.
This new touring initiative aims to showcase and build demand for high-quality contemporary sculptural work by Australian artists to audiences nationally.
In partnership with Logan Art Gallery, the exhibition will launch in late 2018 and tour nationally until 2021. It will bring together a strong selection of new/recent works by 8–12 high-calibre emerging, mid career and established contemporary Australian artists. It is envisaged that each artist will show a number of new works/installation rather than a single work.
The touring exhibition will be supported by an exhibition catalogue, education resource, website (including filmed artist interviews), media kit, sculpture symposium, and artist/curator talks.
This exhibition is subject to funding. M&G QLD is sourcing project grants, philanthropic partners and sponsors to develop and realise this initiative.
