Current Projects encourages critical dialogues around contemporary art and curatorial practice by providing a platform for active, meaningful engagement between artists, curators, writers and audience. Current Projects provides support and opportunities for emerging artists to work within a model that embraces a curatorial approach whereby they are encouraged to consider their relationship to contemporary art theory and writing. Current Projects is interested in developing critical dialogue around the practice of emerging artists through employing the skills of both writers and curators, thereby strengthening the skills and relationships between them. We aim to promote this exchange between artists, curators and writers by encouraging scholarship, building critical dialogue and discussion, and providing a flexible and dynamic exhibition platform that makes this possible. Current Projects engages with a diverse range of artists who work across different mediums and have a variety of forms of practice.
Current Projects hosts both exhibitions and events which promote a cross fertilisation of ideas between artists and arts workers. We encourage new and experimental ways of thinking about the working relationship between artists, writers and curators. This involves exhibitions, publications and a public program that encourages rigorous dialogue about the roles and potential of artists and art workers within the Queensland arts sector and also within the broader context of contemporary art theory and debate.
