Queensland eschewed its stereotype of syrupy heat and tropical vistas to show its more pensive side via art, with the launch of Northern Exposure, an exhibition by some of the state’s most prolific and provocative artists.
Launched at aMBUSH Gallery in November 2013, Northern Exposure brought the varied insights and aesthetics of Asio, Benjamin Reeve, Cezary Stulgis, Fintan Magee, Guido Van Helten, Lee Harnden and Shida to Sydney’s contemporary art audiences and shed light on a more serious side of Queensland culture.
Delving into concepts ranging from the brutality of Queensland’s hip-hop community to haunting anatomical explorations and the changing face of an increasingly multicultural population, Northern Exposure was a captivating cross-section of influences, inspirations and insights from artists born and bred in our country’s sunshine state.
