Onespace Gallery is very proud to present its first ever solo show by represented artist, Tamika Grant-Iramu. This marks another significant milestone in her already impressive career, which has seen her receive an individual grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, collect a Westpac Emerging Arts Award at CIAF 2019, and be acquired by both prestigious institutions such as Griffith University Art Museum and by major private interstate collectors.
Gallery Director, John Stafford states: “This online exhibition, was an innovative and important partnership opportunity, seized by both Onespace Gallery and Redland Art Gallery, due to the postponement of Tamika’s scheduled exhibition at Redland as a result of the restrictions brought in by government to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Tamika has worked so hard bringing this body of vinyl-cuts together for Redland, it seemed such a shame to wait for another year to experience them”.
We wish to sincerely congratulate and thank Director, Emma Bain and her team at Redland Art Gallery for being so responsive in enabling Onespace to deliver this preview of Tamika’s first solo exhibition. We are incredibly pleased to have the opportunity to co-present this body of work across an online platform prior to the entire show being physically experienced at Redland Art Gallery in 2021.
