Level 3, UQ Art Museum

Exhibitions curated by Taylor Hall, Brittany-lea Traverso, and Bree Di Mattina

Summer Mixer is a suite of summer exhibitions curated by students. Diverse in content and theme, the shows draw directly from the UQ Art Collection. Based on exhibition proposals conceived during UQ’s Visual Arts Curating and Writing course, the exhibitions were developed through mentorship, guidance, and physical access to collection artworks.

Brittany-lea Traverso’s exhibition examines artworks which employ satire to puncture Australia’s perceived egalitarian society; Taylor Hall sought artworks that deal almost compulsively with physical processes, materials and tactility, and Bree Di Mattina’s exhibition displays artworks that queer and reimagine established narratives and iconography.
