Through this startling installation work, Archie Moore asked visitors to re-consider the notion of how our community celebrates. Moore invited participants to ‘join the in-crowd at the Club’s birthday. But be warned, the seats are limited! Will you be allowed in?’

Archie Moore: Club

Archie Moore, named after the famous African-American boxer, exhibits nationally and internationally. His work communicates a deep understanding of cultural content from an urban viewpoint. His interest in language developed from negative childhood experiences, which he now deconstructs, altering their meanings.

In 1998 he completed a Bachelor of Arts at the Queensland University of Technology, and in 2001 was awarded a Millennial Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship to undertake a non-degree research program at the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague, in the Czech Republic. In 2008, he was a finalist in the Xtrata Emerging Indigenous Art Award.

As Brisbane celebrated 150 years of the establishment of the city as a municipality, throughout 2009, Museum of Brisbane presented work by Indigenous artists to celebrate, acknowledge and honour the long history, culture and heritage of Indigenous people of the region.
