History v Birth

An interesting combination of shows is currently on at the Institute of Modern Art, Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley. The gallery is split in 2 and is showing a 20 year retrospective of one of Queensland's most interesting artists, Diena Georgetti.

At the same time, artists at the beginning of their careers are showing: Silvana and Gabriella Mangano, Laith McGregor, Ross Manning and Eric Bridgeman. It makes for an interesting mix. Showing until 29 November 2008.

The opening night party was one not to be missed as it was attended by hordes of gorgeous Y-Gen art students in all their finery. The evening ended late at Isis Bar with Max Delany from MUMA still in a gregarious mood and entertaining everyone with his amusing tales. Wherever does he find the energy?
