SUGAR SPIN: YOU, ME, ART AND EV­ERY­THING

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On Brisbane -

The Queens­land Gallery of Mod­ern Art has been trans­formed for a ma­jor sum­mer ex­hi­bi­tion, “Sugar Spin: you, me, art and ev­ery­thing”. The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures more than 250 con­tem­po­rary art­works ex­plor­ing light, space, ar­chi­tec­ture and the senses. From brand-new im­mer­sive works to large-scale vis­i­tor favourites, the ex­hi­bi­tion re­flects our com­plex con­nec­tions to the nat­u­ral world with an ex­plo­sion of colour, sen­sa­tion and spin­ning de­lights. Ma­jor new art­works in­clude “Nervescape”, a multi-coloured land­scape of synthetic hair by Ice­landic-born artist Hrafn­hildur Arnardót­tir (aka Sho­plifter), and the elec­tri­fy­ing “Heard” by Amer­i­can sculp­tor and per­for­mance artist Nick Cave, a group of vi­brant sculp­tural horses brought to life by dancers. Un­til 17 April, Gallery of Mod­ern Art, Stan­ley Place, South Bank. 3840 7303. qagoma.qld.gov.au
