BORDERLANDS invites 12 local artists to respond to the idea of borders and to examine what arises when considering living and working near the border of QLD & NSW. In this exhibition we contemplate the nature of borders, and how and why they exist (if they do exist) in our own minds. The artists are invited and given time to show existing or new work in response. Each artist has been chosen for their unique medium presentation that crosses over traditional modes with new media and cross-disciplinary art forms.

This is a group exhibition of local contemporary artists working within a 50 kilometre radius of the QLD and NSW state border.

Exhibiting artists include;
Ellie Beck, Chris Bennie, Aaron Chapman, Byron Coathup,
Hannah Cutts, Geoff Davidson, Ree Hegh, Amelia Reid,
Rebecca Ross, Mitchell Schultz, Christine Willcocks, Tim Wilson

Curated by Amelia Reid and Byron Coathup

Super Souvenir II — Edge Conference 2018

  • Victoria Avenue Broadbeach, QLD, 4218 Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Super Souvenir is a hybrid space — a portable contemporary gallery and micro museum on wheels, residing in a repurposed 1978 Viscount Royale Caravan . As a specially commissioned project for Edge Fringe 2018, Super Souvenir will present a special display on how Gold Coast architecture has been presented on souvenirs and show how the stylish built form became so much a part of Gold Coast allure. Alongside the t-towels and trays are new works by 6 contemporary artists whose responses to the architectural form of the city seek to provoke thinking on a new generation of souvenirs and interrogate the need for the design of future memories. @annacareyhere @aaronmchapman @danielwilsonstudio @yingang @ashleyjnixon @johngollings.

This event is part of the Australian Institute of Architects National Conference @institute_architects_aus Curated by Virginia Rigney @virginia_rigney & Byron Coathup @byron_c

Super Souvenir [Bleach Festival / Festival 2018]

The Gold Coast has a glorious tradition of the tacky souvenir. The Super Souvenir project takes a fresh look at these little talismans of memory, that generations of visitors took home with them after their holiday in the sun.

As the city evolves, Super Souvenir asks, what are the new kinds of souvenirs that speak about this place. Local artists have been invited to make objects, images and sound that generate conversations about the new Gold Coast and how it relates to its’ souvenir heritage past.

Look for the Super Souvenir caravan as it goes on the road around the Coast. Experience historical and contemporary displays of classic souvenirs and meet artists, collectors and community members at Panel Conversations and Souvenir Stories sessions.

You’re also invited to BYO GC souvenir and record what your souvenir means to you in the live podcast room. Drop in for some hands-on workshops for the whole family or pop in for the afternoon chills out sessions with the Teenage Retreat program led by young artists, musicians and designers.

Tune in online, at and @super.souvenir on Instagram where you will find updates and conversations with podcasts, interviews and the latest developments of life on the road with this roving exhibition space.
