A NEW FESTIVAL BRINGING TOGETHER ARTIST-RUN INITIATIVES AND EMERGING ARTISTS FROM ACROSS AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND FOR 10 DAYS OF EXHIBITIONS, MUSIC, PERFORMANCE, PARTIES AND TALKS.
OUTER SPACE (QLD)
TITLE: Parallel Park
ARTISTS: Holly Bates and
Tayla Jay Haggarty
LOCATION: School of Creative Arts
Parallel Park is the collaborative art practice between Brisbane-based artists Holly Bates and Tayla Jay Haggarty. The focus of the collaboration is concentrated on playfully exploring the external influences that impact lesbian sexuality and the intricacies of the artist’s romantic relationship. In Time is a performance installation that is comprised of a durational dance piece and looped video. The work employs cliché romantic imagery and humour in an effort to explore queer futurity in the current Australian political climate.
About OUTER SPACE
Outer Space is a Brisbane ARI co-founded in 2016 by Caity Reynolds and Llewellyn Millhouse. From 2016 to 2017, Outer Space has focused on developing and facilitating solo exhibitions for under-represented contemporary artists in Brisbane. In 2018 Outer Space will expand to operate three gallery spaces and a large-scale studio residency program. In this new iteration Outer Space will transition from its current model of governance to a model that is driven democratically by members of the organisation through a rotating board of directors.
