In the Studio: Bruce Reynolds
Wednesday | October 12 2022
“What links painting and sculpture is the way we reconcile our decorative impulses, our pragmatism and our shared histories.” Bruce Reynolds
Join Bruce Reynolds in his studio for QATA’s next In the Studio workshop
Bruce Reynolds is a Brisbane based artist whose practice responds to the urban environment using its materiality to evoke a dialogue between recent histories and the archaic. He has made trips to Bangladesh, China, Malta, and Rome to pursue the historic migration of ideas and forms linking Europe and Asia.
He is represented in the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery, Museum of Brisbane, Artbank, QUT and UQ Art Museums, Canberra Museum and Gallery and regional art galleries.
Thank you to those who nominated to attend this workshop at Bruce’s studio. This position has been filled.
Don’t have access to the materials? No bother. Tune in anyway to learn about Bruce’s practice and techniques.
Or better still, collaborate with some colleagues.
This is a great opportunity to work with your colleagues / friends to gather all materials and have an enriching afternoon making artworks together.

Gordon Hookey: A MURRIALITY
Friday, 21 October, 6.00PM–8.00PM
Celebrate the opening of renowned Waanyi artist Gordon Hookey‘s first survey show, A MURRIALITY.
Hookey‘s work is best known for its vibrant imagery, biting political satire, and witty critique of racism. A MURRIALITY addresses historical and contemporary issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through the lens of Hookey’s lived experience as a Murri person.
Co-commissioned with UNSW Galleries, Sydney, the exhibition features a significant new commission that draws inspiration from Hookey’s vast collection of political posters and continues his acclaimed series of protest banners.
Join us in celebrating this monumental exhibition spanning three decades of Hookey’s bold and iconic work.
