DHANAMENTA is a one-day offsite exhibition featuring 8 artists and spanning 10 locations around THE WALLS in Miami. From North Burleigh down Mountain View Avenue to Ernie Tebb Park, the exhibition explores the Gold Coast landscape and its natural and fabricated beauty by inviting artists to respond to and install artworks in specific sites in our postcode. DHANAMENTA is a sunny play on DOCUMENTA, the famed outdoor and site-specific survey of international contemporary art.

The exhibition kicks off with David David’s Book Launch and a brew at Caffeine Kings [1920 Gold Coast Hwy, Miami] at 2pm, followed by a guided walk with curator Dhana Merritt at 2.30 – 4pm. Join us back at THE WALLS from 5 – 8pm for the opening of CHANNEL SURFING featuring Benjamin Forster, Anita Holtsclaw and Daniel Mudie Cunningham.

Self-navigation maps can be collected from The Walls at 4/18 Mountain View Avenue Miami. The walk to view all artworks, starting and ending at The Walls, is approximately 1.5km and takes about 20 minutes, not including time to view or participate in the artworks. We suggest 1-1.5 hours to navigate the circuit, stop and view the artworks, take in the surrounding views, and to hydrate along the way at one of Rachael Bartram’s drink stations. Most of the locations can be accessed by car and there is on street parking available.

DHANAMENTA is a joint project between The Walls and DM ARI

This project is supported by The Regional Arts Development Fund. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast Council partnership to support local arts and culture. This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
