Brisbane agency BCM has today announced a creative partnership with Artisan Gallery which will see a fully operational art gallery built in BCM’s Fortitude Valley agency. BCM’s gallery will be called ‘Crucible.’ A purpose built gallery space starts construction this week and is designed by renowned architects Donovan Hill.
The gallery will host 4 exhibitions per year which will be curated by Tasha Finn who has been appointed as an ‘Emerging Curator’ by Artisan and BCM. Tasha holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Art History. In her relatively short career so far, Tasha has worked in both public and private galleries in South-East Queensland preparing exhibitions with artists who work in a variety of media.
The first exhibition launches with the official opening of the BCM Crucible Gallery early in the New Year.
“We believe this to be the first of its kind” commented BCM Agency Partner, Paul Cornwell.
“We’re really excited about broadening our creative perspective via this gallery and partnership with Artisan. Exhibits will range in nature from jewellery, furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, fashion, textiles, paperware, leather goods, and interior products”.
“Clients and visitors to the agency will be able to tour the gallery. Students will be invited to special events. BCM staff will be able to run meetings and workshops within the gallery as it will be set up with a functional yet relaxed meeting space” said Cornwell.
“It will be a terrific hub of creativity in the agency. We already have many bookings for the space. It will really foster idea generation and thought leadership” added BCM Agency Partner, Kevin Moreland.
