4 pm – 6 pm: Opening Event

Decadence may invite notions of luxury and self-indulgence. It may evoke ideas of wanton excess or wastefulness, perhaps with a casual or deliberate disregard of consequence. Dependent on circumstance, personal definitions of decadence can shift quite suddenly. In 2020, artists were encouraged to explore the complex notion of decadence within their own communities and households across Queensland – both in times of shortage, and in times of plenty. This is the exhibition outcome of the Queensland Regional Art Awards 2020.

The Queensland Regional Art Awards (QRAA) celebrates 10 years in 2020, a decade of rewarding and celebrating Queensland regional arts and the wealth of creativity and imagination thriving in the regions.
