Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole is a research project showcasing artists from the University Southern Queensland and Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.

This exhibition showcases the works of emerging artists who explore the use of visual narratives as a form of critical inquiry into contemporary local, national and international debates. Each artist tells their own story by visually navigating the viewer through metaphorical, symbolic or mythical realms. These visual stories blur boundaries between fact and fiction, luring the viewer down the rabbit hole.

Featured Artists:

USQ: Glen Bowman, Ellie Coleman, Dan Elborne, Chris Kelly, Linda Clark, Grace Dewar, Amber Kilkenny, AJ Gogas, Kathy Appleby, Jason Castro, Tarn Maclean.

QCA: Olivia Bradley, Adis Fejzić, Dale Harding, Kay Lawrence, Carol McGregor, Julie-Anne Milinski, Michelle Roberts, Eric Rossi, Brian Sanstrom, Glen Skien and Lynden Stone.
