Hold Sway 2020 Visual Arts Graduate Exhibition

The online platform captures the exhibition and showcases the art practices of 32 emerging artists graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts).

Hold Sway also features an online exhibition catalogue and presents virtual artist talks, performances and digital artworks.

The artists in Hold Sway have honed their creative practice in the context of QUT Visual Arts’ Open Studio program. This offers a transmedia approach to contemporary art and students work across installation, performance, photography, sculpture, painting, video and more.

These art practices address the challenges facing us today – climate activism, our relationship to nature and each other, animal rights and protection, gender fluidity, sexuality, cultural diversity, mental health, spirituality, personal memory and embodied experience.
