Gabriella Wilson’s current field of research includes identifying artistic methods that effectively impact social change. For the practical component of her thesis, Gabriella is working collaboratively with Brent Wilson traversing ground inside and beyond the gallery to present sculptures, interactive installations, interventions, music, graphics, publications and merchandise.
By working in both these platforms, they close the gap between their artwork and broader audiences. Its these audiences they hope to provoke to think and act in response to the damaging ideologies underpinning our society.
They have received a highly commended in the Paramor Prize and Moreton Bay Art Awards. They are also recipients of both Australia Council and Arts Queensland grants. They have exhibited in a number of group and solo exhibitions, and more recently at Kings ARI, Gold Coast City Gallery, Griffith University Art Gallery and Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art in Poland. This year Gabriella is presenting at the Artist Book conference at Griffith University and at the Social Theory, Politics and the Arts Conference, University of South Australia.
A significant part of Gabriella’s research is the production of The Equal Standard Broadzine – a quarterly publication tackling some significant issues of our time. You can view the published editions here. Their website is currently being updated, but a small selection of their work is available here.
