Spare Parts Brisbane 2013

20th August - 15th September

WHEN : 20th August – 15th September
WHERE : Brisbane Powerhouse

Spare Parts brings together a diverse range of artists who each use pre-loved prosthetics as their canvas.
Curator of this exhibition, Queensland amputee, Priscilla Sutton, started working on a fun creative project back in 2010. It started by Priscilla recycling her own old prosthetic legs she had tucked away in the cupboard, and then she collected others from all over Australia, America and Laos, and the result was a very popular exhibition at the Brisbane Powerhouse that year, followed by another successful exhibition in London during the 2012 Paralympics.

The 2013 Spare Parts exhibition (Brisbane Powerhouse, August 20 – September 15) aims not only to recycle pre-loved arms and legs into new and exciting artworks but also to create an open and positive conversation, celebrating prosthetics and how much can be achieved by using them.
