With its latest exhibition, QUT Art Museum might just be taking inspiration from David Bowie. This showcase isn't about the iconic musician, but it's definitely taking his words to heart — and turning and facing the strange.
Running until Sunday, February 3, Beyond Reason is all about pieces that throw logic, sense and all things ordinary out of the window. It's a haven for everything that's weird and wonderful, absurd and theatrical, and satirical and spontaneous. And, as it explores ideas of cultural identity, popular culture and sexuality, it dives deep into the mythical, the fairy tale-like and the transformative as well.
Spanning everything from sculptures to paintings — and plenty in-between as well — the exhibition also boasts a sizeable lineup of artists. There's 29 creative folks exploring the topic, with the lineup starting with Karen Napaljarri Barnes and ending with Michael Vale. Others featured include Amber Boardman, Matthew Clarke, DC Style Fylez, Hannah Gartside, Kyoko Imazu, Sharon Muir, Tom Polo, Zoe Porter and The Ryan Sisters.
