Courtney Coombs & Daniel McKewen

9th November - 8th February

IMA Belltower

After an open call for applications across Queensland, Courtney Coombs and Daniel McKewen have been selected to exhibit as part of the IMA Belltower program.

Field of Vision by Courtney Coombs presents new works which engage with the horizon as a starting point, and a metaphor, for discussing the human condition—specifically connection, disconnection, and longing.

As an artist, writer and facilitator, Coombs adopts an array of materials, mediums and approaches to present subjective, vulnerable, and earnest moments. By responding to the cis-heteronormative, patriarchal, and neoliberal structures of both the art world and society more broadly with gestures and propositions, they hope to disrupt dominant narratives, prompting conversation, reflection, and a celebration of difference.

Promissory Estoppel by Daniel McKewen is a temporary public artwork, to be projected on the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

Daniel McKewen’s practice investigates the intersections of contemporary art, popular culture, economics, politics, and screen-based mass media. Working across a range of media including video installation, McKewen examines the formal and symbolic conventions of these institutionalised structures, exploring our individual and shared interactions with them.
