Hold Sway | 2020 Visual Arts Graduate Exhibition
The online platform www.hold-sway.com captures the exhibition and showcases the art practices of 32 emerging artists graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts).
The artists in Hold Sway have honed their creative practice through QUT Visual Arts’ Open Studio program - our pioneering transmedia approach to contemporary art as students work across installation, performance, photography, sculpture, painting, video and more.
These art practices address the challenges facing us today – climate activism, our relationship to nature and each other, animal rights and protection, gender fluidity, sexuality, cultural diversity, mental health, spirituality, personal memory and embodied experience.
These graduating artists show their ability to hold sway in this current time of heightened social, ecological and creative challenges, through exploring a diverse range of conceptual and material approaches.
Stay tuned for upcoming virtual artist talks, discussion panels, performances and screenings!
