So sad to hear of Peter Anderson’s sudden passing. I didn’t know him at all, but was lucky enough to interview him a few years ago when he curated Ephemeral Traces at UQ Art Museum, and he was such a passionate wealth of information about the history of Brisbane’s art scene - I could have chatted to him all day!
Thoughts are very much with his friends and loved ones. And thanks to UQAM for the photographic evidence of our meeting - I don’t even mind that it’s my worst angle 😉❤️...

ARIREMIX : (Re)Presenting – An Apocalyptic Pin-Up – A Soylent Spot Slide Night + DIY Zine [by artist Erika Scott and a cast of Brisbane ARI artist colleagues] – May 2020 ( a collective memory work in progress now ) #ariremix
This absolutely stellar human, Jorgen Doyle picturemorgue, has been working tirelessly for weeks/months on the front area of WTS to produce a beautiful native garden, fit with reticulation and, soon to come, a little zine with Beth Sometimes mood_light as a manual /educator / guide to the garden and all its special plants. Jorgen started this project a year ago but went back to Jakarta where he and wonderful Hannah Ekin hushhushhannah live when they’re not in Alice/Mparntwe, learning and helping out wherever they go. Throughout the year Beth looked after the few plants that had grown from that first stage, until Jorgen and Hannah returned in the heat of summer this year with the floral-shirted, smiley gentle Jorgen diving right back in. We are so grateful, impressed, inspired and generally bloody stoked to have this garden 🌱 Thank you, Jorgen 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 #nativegarden #garden #greenthumb #ariremix #artistruninitiative #alicesprings #mparntwe #nativeplants #nativeaustralianplants #legend...

Wendy Mills’ installation ‘View of divine union: a temporary affair’ was shown in 1983 at 40 Charlotte Street, also known as the John Mills Himself building. She sub-let this space from 1982-89 as a studio and gallery, and shared it with other local artists including Lyndall Milani, Judith Wright and June Tupicoff. “During part of the 1980’s I lived in a share house with poets, writers, musicians, refugees, environmental and political activists. We had a loose connection with the West End Catholic Anarchists and were under surveillance by Queensland Police Special Branch. We suspected our phone was tapped and we knew for certain they came to our door mainly disguised as collectors for the Red Cross and trying to gather information about our associates and us. There was a slight feel of revolution in the air but life was easy in Australia.” (ARI Remix Project interview)
