9-15th November 2022 - M2 Gallery Surry Hills
Beautiful Tomorrow is a collection of 19 artworks created over the past few years either during lockdown, isolation or while anticipating better days ahead.
Exploring some of the bittersweet stuff of life, this collection of figurative work looks at the magic, the mundane, the joys, the pains, the loves, the losses, desires, and hopes, that make for a beautiful, sometimes painful, but ordinary life.
In order to immerse you deep in the art, each piece has been paired with a music track designed to take you deep into the artwork. Using your best quality headphones and your mobile device (with a music subscription to either Spotify or Itunes) you can scan QR codes to access the music track matched to each piece. You can choose to take the entire journey, viewing every piece with its matched song (which takes about 1 hour 20mins) or select those pieces that speak to you.
You can see all the artworks from the exhibition in the Gallery page where you can also follow links to their matched music track. The full playlist is available below:
STORIES of STRANGERS EXHIBITION
Artspace on The Concourse
29 July - 9 August 2020
What do you see when you look at a piece of art? Is it different or similar to the person standing next to you? Stories of Strangers explores how art can mean different things to different people through storytelling and wants to know what you see through your unique goggles by inviting you (the 'Strangers') to tell the story you see in the art.
A collection of 21 original artworks by Trinity Morris will be presented alongside the stories, poems, and other imaginings of 'strangers' for the public to contemplate, compare, and enjoy. Anyone can contribute a story by going to the website and looking through the artworks or by visiting the exhibition. All abilities welcome!
Due to COVID restrictions, you will need to bring their own mobile device (tablet or smartphone) and use QR codes to access the stories written by strangers as you peruse the art in the gallery.
Trinity says "There have been some beautiful stories, poems and other imaginings contributed including a wonderful story by Australian music icon, radio host and writer Tim Rogers. Some can bring a tear, others make you laugh and really look at the art in a completely different way...It's fascinating to look through someone else's lens."
A few of the works have been brought to life with an Augmented Reality (AR) extension and you'll need your smart device to experience this very cool hidden feature embedded in these artwork.
