Safe Space contemporary sculpture

Safe Space contemporary sculpture has its own website with images and information on each of the artists and their artworks:

Approximately every four years, Museums & Galleries Queensland (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.

Safe Space brings together three-dimensional art works by twelve contemporary Australian artists that explore psychological aspects of physical space. It features a range of figurative elements and narrative themes with social, and sometimes political, resonances. Many of the works in this exhibition take as their point of departure: the human body, its dimensions, the spaces it occupies, the narratives that contain it and the theatre or spectacle that unfolds around it.

Artists

Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Alex Seton, Claire Healy + Sean Cordeiro, David Cross, Franz Ehmann, Karla Dickens, Keg de Souza, Michelle Nikou, Rosie Miller, Tim Sterling, Will French.
