You can pre-order your copy of their debut limited edition 7″ record now via email for just $10 + postage (chq/money orders).

We’re launching IP (Independent Press) in December, a tabloid style free art newspaper. This edition will focus on the IE Spring/Summer Program of artists, exhibitions and events. We’re also inviting local ARI’s to submit for one of a limited number of full page ads with our super mates rates, like we’re your new best friend! The paper will be a 32 page publication circulated in early December. If you have a show you want Brisbane arts audiences to know about, contact us at and we’ll give you the low down.

Paul Mumme moves into the temporary art space at Shop 29, TCB for his new show with IE. EVERYTHING AT ALL runs from 20 October – 14 November with more than 11 new works. The artist will occupy the space which is open Mondays and Tuesdays from 9-12 and Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10-4 as a pseudo studio space. Come in, meet Mumme and check out the show. For more info on the work go to Mumme’s artist blog.


For love or money

With the Spring/Summer ’09 Program in full swing, a team of writers has joined IE to cover each of the exhibitions by the five emerging artists. For love or money, but preferably cold hard cash, Vivian Hogg, Dhana Merrit, Sarah Werkmeister, Danni Zuvela and Anna Zammit will write for the inaugural catalogue to be launched in December.

BARI ’09

This year BARI Festival is bigger and better than ever with a plethora of ARIs involved. We can’t wait for the program of exhibitions, forums, open studios, workshops and parties from 1-10 October.
