Safe Space brings together three-dimensional art works by twelve contemporary Australian artists that explore psychological aspects of physical space.
About the exhibition
Safe Space 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.
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 contemporary sculpture has its own website with images and information on each of the artists and their artworks.
