Join us at QUT Art Museum on Saturday 13 August to launch the first Frontier Imaginaries publication on the final weekend of the exhibition in Brisbane. Frontier Imaginaries Ed Nº1 offers a chance to reflect upon how, why, and with what tools locally-focused projects can be meaningfully connected across vastly separate geographies. Are publications valuable means of transmitting the specific work of an exhibition across time and territories? Do more recent communications technologies offer other tools that may be more useful? From the art-making perspective, what can be learned and/or contributed to the approaches of current social movements that strive to effect local change within systems of globalised power-relations?

Following from the success of the Artist Assemblies held at the opening of Frontier Imaginaries across the IMA and QUT Art Museum, this Publications Assembly will invite contributions from artists, curators, art-historians and leading figures from within local social movements for a public dialogue that foreshadows the next phase of the project at the 8th Jerusalem Show, held upon the invitation of the Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art and as part of the Qalandiya International 2016.

Moderated by Vivian Ziherl (IMA Curatorial Fellowship 2015, QUT Visual Art Alumni), with Amelia Barikin (Art History, University of Queensland), Amanda Cahill (Centre for Social Change), Léuli Eshraghi (PhD Candidate, Monash University), Dale Harding (artist), and  Pekeri Ruska (WAR, The Black Rising).

RSVP via QUT Art Museum
