THIS IS NOT THE WORK
Curated by LEVEL
The Block | QUT Creative Industries Precinct
9-27 September 2014
For the exhibition, THIS IS NOT THE WORK, LEVEL continues their investigation of alternative curatorial methods. Surveying a selection of community-engaged artist projects from different locations around the world, this exhibition has followed the pathways of women-centred social networks in order to initiate further collaboration and conversation. The projects documented in this exhibition are examples of artists working with women and community in challenging and unpredictable ways, demonstrating feminist strategies and a commitment to non-hierarchical and collective structures. As in the past, LEVEL uses the gallery as a conceptual base-camp or frontline rather than a just site of display.

13-17 August 2014
Extended Conversation Pieces brings together conversations about art, and conversation as art. The exhibition features collaborative works by six Brisbane emerging artists, Catherine or Kate (Catherine Sagin and Kate Woodcroft), Scott Ferguson (Erika Scott and Brooke Ferguson) and Courtney Coombs and Caitlin Franzmann. These artists engage with ideas of contemporary feminism through processes of dialogue and exchange; exploring subjectivity, humour and intimacy in performance and installation works.

The exhibition material matters brings together new works by Amy Commins, Jamie Behrendorff, Grace Kevill-Davies, Zoe Knight, Ruth McConchie and Courtney Pedersen – Brisbane-based artists whose experimental practices engage with materiality in specific ways. The artists in the exhibition investigate the temporal in terms of making and experiencing art in various modes – installation, sculpture, video, sound and works on paper. Through these material engagements, the artists question and re-imagine ways of connecting in the contemporary world, drawing together considerations of humour, history, politics, nature and everyday life.

Opening on International Women’s Day, ‘Conversation Pieces’ presents works by Australian artists Agatha Gothe-Snape, Alex Martinis Roe and Hannah Raisin and new collaborative works by Catherine or Kate, Scott Ferguson (Erika Scott & Brooke Ferguson) and Courtney Coombs & Caitlin Franzmann. These works are generated by physical, verbal or textual dialogues between collaborators, participants or the artist and audience; and spark a conversation about feminist art practice today.

For Offsite, Boxcopy is working together with their art neighbours to get out of the gallery and into the streets, to find out just what it is that makes collaboration in this city ‘so different, so appealing’. Offsite brings together five local artist run initiatives and collectives, Accidentally Annie Street, Current Projects, David/David, inbetweenspaces and Level – presenting interventions and projects in various locations in and around Brisbane’s CBD, with the Boxcopy gallery serving as headquarters.
