Emma Lindsay, Marty, 2010

An exhibition at the Redcliffe City Art Gallery in Queensland has recently opened looking at Australian suburbia: its people, their secrets, the friendships and a whole lot more.

Curator Emma Lindsay has brought together 22 contemporary Australian artists in her quest to explore Suburbia. The works produced by each of the artists looks at the shifting cultural landscape that is the Australian suburbs. Where once suburbia was the domain of the middle class building a refuge – their castle – these neighbourhoods have shifted dramatically.

Lindsay has brought together artists of varying backgrounds – indigenous-Australians, immigrant-Australians and Australian-born citizens – and presents their different experiences of the suburbs by way of discussing and exploring the cultural shift of Australia’s Suburbia.

The stella line up of exhibiting artists include: Jenny Watson, Mostyn Bramley-Moore, Sebastian di Mauro, Bianca Beetson, Sue Beyer, Emma Lindsay, Michael Zavros, Judy Watson, Chris Bennie, Marian Drew, Laini Burton, Anika Wilkins, Paul McCann, Thom Kotis, Isabel & Alfredo, Aquilizan, Howard Arkley, Tracey Moffatt, Gordon Bennett, Sangeeta Sandrasegar, Elisabeth Lawrence and Destiny Deacon.

    I wish I had a bit of that – I did a bit of Brisbane suburbia back in the mid eighties.
