March 2-April 10, 2011
In March No Frills* will take part in ‘Eastern Seaboard‘ curated by Reuben Keehan at Artspace Sydney. Eastern Seaboard is an exhibition and symposium project exploring the conditions, conceptual frameworks and creativity of artist collectives operating in Australia’s urbanised southeast. The show also includes projects from The Cosmic Battle for Your Heart and Foodcourt du Jour, du Jour.
Since leaving the comforts and constraints of routine programming at Metro Arts the No Frills* directors have been increasingly inclined to spend time away from Brisbane and each other in search of independent accounts of the international art world. In the lead up to Eastern Seaboard, communication across time zones has exacerbated the incongruence of their approaches and ultimately proven their inability to make art together as a four-way collaboration. In response to this, No Frills* proposes new methods of collaboration in the hope of addressing their ambivalent desire to connect with other artists at home and abroad.
