Passen-gers is a site-specific exhibition series based within the Brunswick Centre, a Modernist, residential and commercial development, that brings together artists with an interest in the real and imaginative environments we construct and inhabit. The title references the 1975 film The Passenger by Antonioni that deploys the architecture as a powerful and otherworldly mise-en-scène. The series is hosted by Gauld Architecture, an architectural practice found between the concrete A frames on the 2nd floor. For Multiplex, artists present work based on their previous exhibition in a ‘multiplex’ structure designed by Gauld Architecture. This structure will be sympathetic towards how each artist inhabited the space and will provide a summative and celebratory framework for the series. The ‘multiplex’ will make literal the generative and multi-directional exhibition structure, presenting the different ideas, themes and narratives that have emerged, overlapped and intersected over time.
