Artist Tour: Kinly Grey and Sebastian Moody

How do you create art that leaps right off the wall and becomes an experience?

Join City in the Sun artists Sebastian Moody and Kinly Grey for an artist-led tour that will plunge you into the process of using text and technology to create experiential and playful installations.

You’ll discover how Kinly uses light, reflection and space to evoke feeling and reimagine the world and ourselves within it. Learn how Sebastian employs concise and careful language to coax his audience into critical awareness.

Wander through the City in the Sun exhibition and lift the lid on art that pushes the boundaries in this fun and inclusive evening at the Museum.

Fully facilitated by a MoB Curator, this 90-minute event will include a tour, Q&A and the opportunity to have a casual drink with the artists in MoB’s Dome Gallery.

Guests are encouraged to arrive from 6pm for a prompt 6:30pm start. The bar will be open from 6pm.

This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

About Sebastian Moody

Sebastian Moody’s artworks draw on words in their presentation and aesthetic. His use of ambiguity and multiple meanings prompt the viewer to consider both what we think and why. Born in Sydney in 1979, Moody currently lives and works in Brisbane where he completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at QUT (2001) and a Master of Museum Studies at The University of Queensland (2009).

Moody has been creating artworks in the public realm since 2002. His KEEP THE SUNSHINE (2015) farewells departing travellers from Brisbane International Airport and THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT THE BIGGER IT GETS (2009) defines a tunnel in the Fortitude Valley.

About Kinly Grey

Kinly Grey engages sensory experience and expanded poetics to explore art as affect. These experiments take form across mediums, including instructional works, performance, objects, and atmospheric installations, occurring outdoors, in public spaces, as well as in the gallery. Placing viewer experience at their centre, Grey’s works often require participation or enactment for their realisation.

Currently, Grey is experimenting with meteorological and atmospheric conditions as embodied phenomena. They’re exploring the thresholds of perception as spaces to engage other ways of feeling, understanding, and being in the world. Laden with metaphor, and foregrounding perception, Grey’s works are explorations of feeling and experience that intersect the intimately personal with the cosmically reflective.
