Long before the Judith Wright Centre opened in October 2001 sixteen years earlier in 1985 Belltower Designers Lindy Stokes, John Boundy, Chris Feld rented the premises and collaborated with a group of artists who had artist studios and beds on the first floor of the the old biscuit and tea factories. Together they reactivated the empty and abandoned 420 Brunswick Street building in Fortitude Valley into a lively arts and design place/space.

The Institute of Modern Art have just launched a new gallery space under the name "Belltower" - but all the PR I've seen has missed this obvious link. My recollection was that at around this time folk involved in projects at that location also lived at 100 Sydney Street ... which for those who like perverse links was in fact the poet Judith Wright's address when she first moved to Brisbane in the 1940s ... an anecdote for the share house / ware house history of Brisbane. And yep, Queens Arms, John Willsteed. The IMA stuff here - ima.org.au/news/ima-belltower-at-judith-wright-centre-of-contemporary-arts/
Art and environment in the South Moreton Bay Islands: responsive, ephemeral, contemporary. Canaipa Mudlines Residencies 2018 – 2019 Canaipa Mudlines finds company within the broader movement of art practice that adopts the natural environment as studio, gallery, archive, teacher, trigger, idea-smith, wise collaborator and honest critic. Since 2016 we have come alive to the outer movements and changes, the subtitles and minutiae, as well as the wild and unpredictable behaviours that characterise a world that lies beyond the control and restraining power of the ingenious human engineer.

We live in a society swamped with images, where high value is placed on physical appearance and an association between attractiveness and youth, particularly for women. Flesh after Fifty will explore and challenge negative stereotypes of aging whilst celebrating and promoting positive images of older women through art. Australian artists have a history of photographing, painting and sculpting the female form, mostly by and for men whose interest in exploring youth, vulnerability and beauty has dominated the images we recognise.

"I am working on a book with Professor Daniel Palmer from RMIT on Australian photography exhibitions from the 1860s to the present. This is an outcome of some Australian Research Council Discovery Project funding we received a few of years ago. We have an online presence at photocurating.net and our ’timeline’ will be a starting point for the book. So far our work is fairly Sydney/Melbourne centric which I am keen to correct.

WHAT Being dumb. DUMB DUMB·THURSDAY, 11 APRIL 2019 Dumb Dumb is an unusual and open-ended exhibition space in Brisbane. We provide exhibition opportunities for local artists whose practices re-route traditional expectations of career progression. Our programming emphasises the promotion of art for art's sake, across all artistic disciplines.
