Call them mixtapes, call them CD compilations, call them playlists — whatever term fits depending on the era, there's an art to making a great collection of tunes. That's the mindset that HOTA, Home of the Arts is bringing into its new — and free — summer exhibition. 'Tis prime mixtape season, after all, even if you're using installations, video works, sculptures and paintings instead of songs.

Opening on Saturday, December 18, Art Mixtape: Yours for Summer brings together more than 80 works from the Gold Coast City Collection, as well as new pieces from Australian and New Zealand artists. The lineup reads like a who's who of impressive talents, including Tracey Moffatt, Sam Jinks, Soda Jerk, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori, Shaun Gladwell and Vernon Ah Kee.

While variety is the key to any great mixtape and all stellar exhibitions, this one is also going big on the summer theme — although you can expect that to be interpreted in a heap of different ways. Think: retro-inspired pieces, nods to pop culture and, befitting the Goldie, a supremely cheeky spirit.
