YOUR MOVE: Australian artists play chess

WHEN : 26 February – 24 April 2011
WHERE : UQ Art Museum

The works in this exhibition engage with a multiplicity of concepts – from Ken Yonetani’s ethereal porcelain sculptures engaging with issues of climate change and environmental degradation, Sebastian Di Mauro’s sculptural discourses on the impacts of colonisation, to Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healey’s more psychological approach – using this game of strategy as a metaphor for the First World War with beer bottles and coasters comprising the key players all displayed on the classic Australian picnic table.

Artists featuring in this exhibition are Robert Jacks, Danie Mellor, Kate Rohde, Caroline Rothwell, Sally Smart, Benjamin Armstrong, Lionel Bawden, Michael Doolan, Emily Floyd.
