The Life of Lines

14th May - 14th August

QUT Art Museum

Frontier imaginaries is a new multi-platform project that explores the condition of the frontier with the era of globalisation, conceived by guest curator and QUT alumnus, Vivian Ziherl, through a one-year Institute of Modern Art (IMA)Curatorial Fellowship.

The exhibition will take place across two Brisbane contemporary art venues; No longer at ease at the IMA (14 May to 16 July) and The life of lines at QUT Art Museum. It draws together leading Australian and Indigenous artists such as Gordon Hookey, Tom Nicholson, Megan Cope and Rachel O’Reilly, with their international peers like Alice Cresicher and Wendelein Van Oldenborgh, to reflect upon major dialogues within Queensland arts and culture within globally significant trajectories.

Frontier imaginaries stages dialogues around Queensland’s unique experience of ‘the life of lines’. From the history of the ‘Brisbane Line’ to ecological lines such as the Great Barrier Reef, current urban/rural and digital divides, and across-sea borders with neighbouring pacific nations to the north; Queensland is a region marked by a history and unique knowledge of the life of lines.
