Hello! A question: How smartphone cameras are impacting contemporary Western visual culture and literacy? An invaluable research project is looking for more participants. Read below and click the HERE link if interested in submitting your expression of interest EOI.

The International Visual Literacy Association, a not-for-profit community of researchers, educators, designers, media specialists, and artists dedicated to the principles of visual literacy, announced on 1 August that Drs TJ Thomson and Shehab Uddin are recipients of its 2022 research grant award.

Dr TJ Thomson is a senior lecturer in visual communication and media at the QUT School of Communication and a Chief Investigator at the QUT Digital Media Research Centre. Dr Uddin is a sessional academic in the QUT School of Communication and is also an adjunct senior lecturer at the Pathshala South Asian Media Institute in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The IVLA funding supports a project, How smartphone cameras are impacting contemporary Western visual culture and literacy, the pair began in 2021 that examines how specific technical affordances, such as ‘portrait mode’ and the ergonomics of smartphones, are affecting visual culture and visual literacy in different age cohorts.

The team is still recruiting participants aged 13-19 and 41-64 who will be compensated $50 for their participation. You can express your interest here.

Founded in 1968, the International Visual Literacy Association is an interdisciplinary organization of professionals working toward a fuller understanding of the way we derive meaning from what we see and the way we interact with our visual environment.

“It has that eclectic Balinese laid back feel, and it has some of the best ocean views – it’s a world away from reality.” With 13 communal cabins - or hippy cabins as they were often called - used as budget accommodation, by artists and the world weary alike, since it opened in 1935 the Headland Chalet has long been one of the island’s most cherished queer getaway sites. I am researching a memory story, to be illustrated with ephemera from artists personal archive for ARI Remix on Headland Chalet, a type of artist-run safe place ( thanks dear Marshall Malouf for decades of artfulness, joy, care and bonhomie) and would love to hear from artists and artist colleagues who also experienced Headland Chalet over the decades, to thread together a type of queer temporality of this unique communal vibe. I started staying at HC in 1981 and 1982 when the very queer village was owned by Hollands, a fabulous old soul who dressed in long vibrant saris and who operated the 1930s cafe of comfy wooden booths (not unlike the polished hardwood booths of the old Shingle Inn ) as a restaurant with sweeping views of seasonal upwellings, storms on the horizon - and chargrilled local seafood with salads - and who I described for a long while as the Quentin Crisp of Straddie Minjerribah. It was during one of these trips when I met artist Gregory Breeze - among others - who I am keen to reconnect with, any clues or leads would be very welcome, thanks so muchly 🙂 and in the thread below is a queer home movie from my collection we made with Marshall while painting a giant bath plug for the swimming pool -an aspect of the ongoing assemblage and painting process for the rainbow coloured getaway where magic happened...

Hello! Am chatting with artist and curator colleagues about important group exhibitions staged in SEQ during the formative 1970s, 1980s and 1990s time frame when SEQ ARIs emerged into their contemporary form ( similar but different to earlier independent DIY artist groups and artist co-operatives like Barjai and Miya Studios in the 1940s) including the influential 'No Names' exhibition - a guest-curated exhibition - staged at the then newly opened 106 Edward Street premises opposite the Brisbane Community Arts Centre ( now Metro Arts) . 1982, the year prior to 'No Names' witnessed the constituting of the Artworkers Union Qld with Ted Riggs, Campbell, Brian Doherty among many others... Any personal memories to kindly share about this guest-curator program exhibition, Artworkers Union Qld and any light to share on the slide projector installation work featuring Ross Pulbrook and Ted Riggs perhaps? thanks for any recollections I am truly grateful:) remix.org.au/aris-nonames

What a list of lovelies!!

Hi Paul. Although the IMA had a guest-curated exhibition program in that period (between John Nixon’s and Peter Cripps’ directorships), the No Names exhibition was deliberately not curated, as in no one selected or rejected works. It was an open call. Malcolm Enright designed the catalogue. Ted and I called it No Names after the cheap Italian restaurant in East Sydney. I can’t remember Ted’s work in the show.

i was helping a large older American woman with The Lift she felt the need to comment that although she had seen exhibitions all over the world she had not seen anything like THIS ! it was a JOKE ! i said - perhaps if you tell your friends they will be amused to come and take a look. Well - let me tell ya - she said - i don't have any friends here. i bit my tongue

It is with sadness we note the passing of Dr Margriet Bonnin, Director of the Art Museum from 1978-98.

Originally appointed Coordinator of Griffith University’s Queensland Film and Drama Centre (QFDC) in 1978, Dr Bonnin oversaw our transformation from QFDC to Griffith Artworks, as well as the provision of vital community-based cultural programs on Brisbane’s southside and the acquisition of many important works in the Collection. During her tenure, the Griffith University Art Collection was well established as a significant public art collection of political posters, works on paper, and what is now the country’s foremost collection of early Australian video art.

In August 1978 the aim of the QFDC was defined as endeavouring to bring together the many different elements of the University community into a productive relationship which would promote film, drama and the visual arts in Queensland. Implementing the Art Museum’s On Campus Exhibition Program, Bonnin ensured works in the University’s art collection could be both appreciated and preserved. This program continues today across Griffith University’s five campuses.

Early in the life of the Collection, most of the works were kept on permanent display as no adequate storage space was available. Dr Bonnin put in place climate-controlled art stores on the Nathan campus, which continue to house the University’s Art Collection.

Dr Bonnin was an astute arts administrator, and well-suited to the pioneering approach to teaching promoted by Griffith University at its inception. She was an active supporter of Brisbane’s artist-run scene throughout the 1980s and championed emerging and women artists in what was then a largely conservative and male-dominated sector, and gained a reputation for the innovative programs offered by the QFDC. Dr Bonnin was determined to provide an environment that was not only rich in academic and intellectual context, but equally supported Griffith University’s agenda of community engagement, opening both the University and wider communities to film, drama, and visual arts through a range of public-programming initiatives.

Current and past staff of the Art Museum send our condolences to Margriet’s family and friends on the passing of a fondly remembered colleague and arts leader.

An extraordinary supporter of artists and artist run initiatives in Qld .. with huge respect ❤️

oh not another one !!! and as usual I am the last to know. What a great person she was... so patient and long-suffering... she had a lot to put up with in her job at Griffith.... she really made a huge difference to the positive development of the Qld art-world ..... and she was in the forefront of developments in art-practice and in the ethics of the art-scene.... such a very lovely, humane woman.... thank goodness though that she is no longer suffering
