Festival 2018 + Bleach*
2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games
1st – 14th April 2018
The Super Souvenir is a creative project that seeks to interrogate place and Gold Coast identity through the prism of the humble souvenir. It’s something of a hybrid. A contemporary art gallery and micro museum on wheels, a space for conversation and chill out, a place to reflect and also to make.
This moment of April 2018 during the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast, was the projects first outing. As part of Bleach* Festival 2018, the project visited Burleigh Heads, Palm Beach and Southport in the refitted and repurposed 1978 Viscount caravan. This project go's well beyond the Games and it continues to travel and exhibit in new places with new meanings.
Artists include; Aaron Chapman, Jay Jermyn, Jason Haggerty, Ash Nixon, Leonie Rhodes and Rebecca Ross.
