GOMA Q opened recently and CREATIVEMOVE Director John Stafford joined some of Queensland’s leading arts minds, including the exhibition’s curators Chris Saines, Peter McKay and Bruce McLean, participating in the GOMA Q roundtable discussion, “Contemporary Art and its Audiences: A Queensland View.”

CREATIVEMOVE congratulates the Gallery, Brian Robinson and all the participating artists and contributors for their inclusion in GOMA Q: Contemporary Queensland Art, at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.

GOMA Q surveys the character of Queensland art and culture. The exhibition reflects the most dynamic achievements in current contemporary Queensland art, showcasing visual artists of all generations working across the spectrum of themes and media. Over 30 Queensland artists are included, spanning emerging, mid-career and established careers. QAGOMA does many good things and this model is clearly one of them – one we hope it continues to do. It takes the pulse more than categorise preferred blood-types and the diversity and fluidity of practice is very apparent and dynamic.

A 96-page illustrated catalogue has been published in conjunction with the exhibition. The eye-catching publication profiles the latest innovations and achievements of the artists featured in the exhibition, and includes the roundtable discussion.  The catalogue is available online and through the QAGOMA store.

GOMA Q runs until 11 October 2015. For more information, visit QAGOMA’s website.
