"This project begins to document the influence of artist run initiatives in Queensland. The artist run initiatives of the 1980s grew out of a critical relationship with the policies and practices of mainstream art institutions and governments. I support this project because documentation and analysis of artist run initiatives is important in the development of art in Queensland. I would like to see this project receive government funding and institutional support to expand on the current research and data base and to develop new initiatives."
" I’ve been looking through the Remix site, it looks great, what an amazing project and resource! Please let us know if there are any other ways we can share and support the Remix Project, we love what you are doing"
" ARI’s or artist-run spaces as we called them also provided us with a place to exhibit, to network and to meet other contemporary artists. This was invaluable at the time as there were no venues, institutions or galleries that would even consider exhibiting my work or promoting my art practice, especially those of a young female artist like myself. It is disconcerting that documentation and ephemera from this era has not been collected and published. This archive of material and resources and those of others like myself, deserves to have a place in the social and art history of the city. It is important to document this history of ARI’s in Brisbane because of the unique political, economic and social circumstances at the time, and how this generated such enormous activity by cultural workers that was often critical, challenging and provocative. REMIX is designed as an online project and what is terrific about this is that it will make these interviews and archives available to a wider audience online, from Queensland and elsewhere, and for much longer period than any exhibition can even attempt to provide. This is important to me."
"The ARI remix website is a joy to behold"
