The 2014 Brisbane Experimental Art Festival will open its doors this Saturday the 9th of August at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. This free event will showcase Brisbane’s best and most emergent artists, as they come together in a night of exhibition that explores experimental pieces of artÂ developed here in our grand city.
The one-night critical program which was formerly know as the Brisbane Emerging Art Festival but has since changed its name, is an exhibition that encompasses this city’s innovative flare for art.
Created in 2010 and produced by Vegas Spray, the festival is run by a group of cultural and engaged artists who are passionate about Brisbane’s growing art culture.
BEAF allows local and upcoming artists to express themselvesÂ as a showcase of the cities growing art scene.
Presenting as an exhibition to the wider public, BEAF is also a space where artists can connect, express their interests and foster new partnerships.
The Festivals hosts and iconic creative space incubators The Judith Wright Centre says that “BEAF makes a significant contribution to the development of contemporary emerging art in Brisbane and engages with communities nationally and internationally.”
Some of the featured artists for this years BEAF include, visual art curator Rachael Haynes whose art practice explores the limits of language and subjectivity. Also featured is performance curator Kieran Swan who works with video, objects, and actions. His work deals with the physical and systemic constructs of the contemporary urban experience, urban-jungles in decay and repetitive activity.
This interesting and inspiring exhibition will run one night only, Festival goers can also check out the list of performers and information about BEAF on the its website.
So come along this Saturday and bring a friend or two for a night that celebrates what Brisbane’s art culture has to give.
