CHECK IN focuses exclusively on new work and seeks to create a platform to promote the most exciting visual art being made in Brisbane. The exhibition presents artists within a dynamic and critical discourse, with a purpose of creating an arena for the public to view, study and critique new modes of art practice being developed locally.

The Brisbane Emerging Art Festival aims to make a significant contribution to the development of contemporary visual art in Brisbane and engage with communities nationally and internationally. The concept and premise of the festival is to promote our local emerging talent and provide multiple artistic platforms to showcase both artist and arts worker.
