Trace Biennial III

The third TRACE Biennial again presents some of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists, raising funds for Community Plus+, and putting contemporary art where we live our everyday lives.
Visit the art in a locksmith, book shops, an Asian grocery store, a jeweller, a mechanics garage, and lots of other unlikely venues along Boundary and Vulture Streets in Brisbane's West End. Then bid for the work online, with proceeds going back to the artists as well as supporting the indispensable, indomitable Community Plus+ and their work with marginalised and vulnerable community members.

This year we've developed TRACE Tracker, a new phone app featuring an updated website with artist biographies, artwork stories, POPSART artist interview videos, venue snapshots and more, all embedded in a geolocated self-guided walking tour.

TRACE 2019 includes leading Australian artists: Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Richard Bell, Natalya Hughes, Dadang Christanto, George Gittoes, Judy Napangardi Watson, Madonna Staunton, Linde Ivimey, and many others... including for the first time emerging, early, and mid career atists. Their (very generous) galleries are David Pestorius Projects, Edwina Corlette Gallery, Jan Manton Art, Jan Murphy Gallery, Milani Gallery, Mitchell Fine Art, Onespace Gallery, Sullivan+Strumpf.

Huge thanks to the rest of the TRACE team: Marilyn Trad, Caroline Gardam, Bec Mac, Carrie McCarthy, Sophie Skordilis, Nick Goding, Tim Quinn, Steve Capelin, Rachael Kelly, BlakLash, Paul Hotston, Susan Ostling, Ali Cameron, and Bhu Vidya.
