Following the success of Temperature: Contemporary Queensland Sculpture in 2004, Museum of Brisbane once again explored out who is heating up the local contemporary art scene in 2009.
‘Taking the temperature’ describes the practice of monitoring and interpreting to better understand the condition of something – in this case, the current work from some Queensland’s most outstanding artists.
This exhibition, showcased work by more than 20 artists from Brisbane and Queensland, included painting, drawing photography, installation and multi-media.
Exhibition artists were: Paul Adair, Tony Albert, Peter Alwast, Chris Booth, Kirsty Bruce, Dadang Christanto, Matt Dabrowski and the Many Hands of Glamour, Karl de Waal, Julie Fragar, Sally Gabor, Diena Georgett, Miles Hall, Jennie Jackso, Kyle Jenkin, Madeleine Kell, Bob Merce, Francesca Ros, Rebecca Ross, Gemma Smit, David M Thoma, Daniel Wallwor, Anika Wilkins.
This project received financial assistance from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland
