Exhibition Season 1 Overview

NorthSite Contemporary Arts’ 2024 exhibition program celebrates the breadth and diversity of practice in Far North Queensland, in dialogue with artists who have strong connections to the region.

Our first season for 2024 will include the inaugural presentation of ‘Ngurruwarra/Derndernyin (stone fish trap)’, a monumental canvas by established and emerging artists from Mirndiyan Gununa Aboriginal Corporation, Mornington Island Art, the outcome of a research project led by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH). Alongside this exhibition will be ‘Conversations with my barista (real or imagined)’, a new photographic and video installation by Cairns-based emerging artist Selina Kudo; and in Gallery Two, ‘Facing Time: 50 Years’ a collaborative exhibition of paintings and drawings by artists and long-term friends Euan Macleod and Cairns-based Geoff Dixon. In addition to our gallery exhibitions, we will present exciting new editions produced through our SpotFire First Nations artist print program, across the Foyer and Long wall spaces.
