The Flying Arts annual exhibition program is designed specifically to provide opportunities for artists, especially regional and remote Queensland artists, to reach out and connect with new audiences and new opportunities.
TOURING EXHIBITIONS AVAILABLE
Decadence, the touring exhibition of the 2020 Queensland Regional Art Awards.
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.
Artists are 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.
Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are now open for Decadence, touring Regional Queensland in 2021 – 2022.
State of Diversity
State of Diversity, the touring exhibition of the 2019 Queensland Regional Art Awards.
Queensland is a state full of diverse ecosystems, wildlife, places, people and personalities. This year, artist were encouraged to explore the diverse elements and qualities that make up their own communities and locations within Queensland.
