About the exhibition

Visitors was exhibited in-person at the Underground Foyer at Brisbane Powerhouse 1 – 12 December 2021.
The theme ‘Visitors’ has been chosen by the artists as a way to come to terms with hopes, fears and desired personal freedoms. Visitors to the home, visitors to the wide outdoors and visitors that inspire our imagination. Each artist has taken a unique perspective on their own freedoms – to move, shapeshift and reimagine the future.


As with Access Arts services, exhibition themes are consciously inclusive to allow for the diversity of expressions and processes of the unique artists involved. Artists are assisted to actualise their personal visions, acknowledging the value of their individual conceptualisations. This exhibition presents as a quadrant of rich activity, as dynamic and diverse as the theme it relates to.


Access Arts is proud to present Brisbane Outsider Artists and their works to shine a light on talented Queenslanders and start a conversation about the need for more recognition for artists with disability.
