"Otherworlds: Images of Fantasy and Fiction"
2002-04-13 until 2002-05-19
Gold Coast City Art Gallery
Gold Coast, QL, AU Australia

Let your imagination take flight when you enter the bizarre realm of dreams and visions in ‘Otherworlds’. During 2002, the Queensland Art Gallery will tour a special exhibition exploring the mystery of imagined worlds to seven venues throughout the state. Opening at Gold Coast City Art Gallery, Otherworlds: Images of fantasy and fiction brings together works that take the viewer on a journey through aspects of fantasy, imaginary worlds and surrealist imagery.

Minister for the Arts Matt Foley said this was the first Queensland Art Gallery exhibition curated and designed specifically for the youth audience to tour Queensland.

'Fantasy, surrealism and science fiction are genres which often appear in literature, television, video games and films. The Queensland Art Galley has used these themes to show the huge role they play in the creative life of leisure and youth' said Mr Foley.

'Through the works on display, this exhibition aims to transport viewers into other worlds where the line between fantasy and reality, truth and fiction either blurs or disappears altogether' said Mr Foley.

A number of themes and practices will be explored in the exhibition. It will feature International and Australian works across a wide range of media including drawing, collage, video, photography, painting and assemblage. The role of imagination and fantasy as ongoing sources of ideas for art production is emphasised throughout the exhibition.

The exhibition includes work from Australian artists Brett Whiteley and Rick Amor, early surrealist works from Yves Tanguy and a video work by New Zealand artist James Cunningham.

Otherworlds brings a dazzling array of fantastic and surreal images to galleries throughout Queensland. It is expected that the imagery, themes and relevant art practices in the exhibition will appeal to secondary and lower tertiary students.
