2012 Inaugural Siganto Foundation Fellow Peter Anderson

Peter AndersonPeter’s project was to research the development of art in Brisbane during the 1980s with the intention to map the emerging contemporary art scene of the time, particularly as it was focused around artist-run spaces. It included placing this activity in both a contemporary and historical context, as well as locating the Brisbane scene more generally within national and international developments. His research was presented as a public lecture in 2013 ‘Tracing the Ephemeral: Towards a History of Artist Run Initiatives in Brisbane’.  The research contributed to the University of Queensland Art Museum’s 2016 exhibition, Ephemeral traces: Brisbane's artist-run scene in the 1980s.
