ephemeral traces: Brisbane’s artist-run scene in the 1980s

Brisbane Times
Can Brisbane learn from itself?

 

” They say a city which does not learn from its past is destined to repeat its mistakes.

 

As Brisbane begins to look again at replacing the god-awful Brisbane Transit Centre and the “dead zone” near Roma Street, its planners could do worse than visit an exhibition at the University of Queensland’s art gallery.

 

That art exhibition, ephemeral traces, highlights a creative buoyant time (1982-1992) in George Street Brisbane, before and after a major section of the inner-city Brisbane was demolished 30 years ago in 1986.

 

Ephemeral traces highlights the birth of Brisbane’s artist-run spaces – the 1980s galleries/studios where emerging artists in painting, sculpture, film, clothing, music and a swirling pot-pourrie from these previously–mentioned spaces mashed art, mischief, design, performance, music and history in rarely, equal proportions.”
