a collaborative exhibition destined to elevate the metro arts gallery to new spiritual heights.
WHEN: 18th February - 7th March 2015
WHERE: Metro Arts, 109 Edward Street, Brisbane, Queensland, 4000
HOW MUCH: Free Entry
This free exhibition provides the first opportunity for the Centre to exhibit its collaborative paintings, fabrics, and digital animations.
A collective of artists from the past, present and future, The Cosmic Centre connects with artists to explore their connections to cosmic and mystic ideologies.
The collective’s paintings sample images and texts from online groups that connect to the cosmic nature of painting and collaboration throughout the twentieth century. The paintings are shared in online social media forums and websites and remixed as paintings, digital images, patterns and GIFS.
Observing the growth of cosmic and alternative spirituality through social media and technology, the Cosmic Centre do away with the heroic figure of the solo painter to embrace connectivity and the transference of energy across space and time.
The first exhibition for Metro Arts’ 2015 program, D&M opens Wednesday 18 February and continues to Saturday 7 March.
The two artists will be presenting an artist talk at 6pm, Wednesday 25 February, in which they will discuss their motivations in creating the exhibition and how dialogue, collaboration and parody can be mediated through objects.
