Landen Callander is a Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist focusing on the logical and diagrammatic representation of thought, memory, and feeling. His works seek to bring representation and importance to underappreciated, mundane constants within suburban Australian life. Landen completed their Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Art) with Distinction at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2019. During his degree Landen interned at not-for-profit art residency space, House Conspiracy, eventually becoming a board member before leaving to co-found their own not-for-profit initiative, Nextdoor ARI, with a group of good friends. Through the co-directing Nextdoor ARI, Landen hopes to support emerging contemporary practices and help foster a friendly, art loving community.

Nextdoor ARI

Nextdoor Artist Run Initiative exists to champion the experimental practices of emerging contemporary artists. Founded in 2020 by five emerging Meanjin (Brisbane) and Yugambeh Country (Gold Coast) based artists, we endeavour to be the ‘next door’ for aspiring artists, providing opportunities for artistic development and personal growth. With a current focus on South-East Queensland artists, our aim is to generate new and authentic art experiences, by facilitating the creation, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art.
