Queensland Academies Creative Industries (QACI) welcomes you to exIBit 2017, part one of Triptych 2017 Showcase; 3 separate creative subject events, spanning 3 separate evenings over 3 separate months – Film, Music, Visual Arts.
The exIBit showcase will feature our Year 12 graduating students’ diverse creative research over three years of rigorous International Baccalaureate study in Visual Arts. With over thirty individual bodies of work presented, interpreting the complexity of social, historical, cultural, and environmental issues faced by these young artists, QACI is proud to have fostered these inquisitive, informed and innovative artistic voices that have made the unknown known.
As a school that has become identifiable in the broader community as an educational institution that expects extremely high levels of work from its students across all disciplines, this event expresses the calibre of their efforts.
Students of Visual Arts at QACI pursue originality, uniqueness and the ever sought after ‘happy accident’ of material alchemy. In many ways, they are scientists of materials and authors of narratives.
Aiming for a 7pm start, this exhibition will be opened by Claudia Husband, Brisbane and US trained print maker; finalist in the 2017 Hadley’s Art Prize and Peebles Print Prize and Co-Director of Grey Hand Press in Gallery 61 on Saturday 26 August. The QACI P&C will host a pre-event function in the foyer commencing from 6.30pm.
Tickets are strictly limited and bookings are essential.
