Creative Sparks | Hidden Marks
20 June @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
“My name is Nigel Matejcic. I paint marks as a form of unconditional love.” Umbrella’s first Creative Sparks commission will be led by Nigel Matejcic, delivering a site-specific art project, Hidden Marks. From a hidden room in Umbrella’s new building, the project will be live-streamed to Umbrella’s audience. Access the live stream on our Instagram page @umbrellastudiotsv from 10am-3pm Saturday 20 June.
Nigel Matejcic is an emerging artist. He holds a Certificate 3 in Visual Arts from TAFE Pimlico and has been practising for over five years. The artists career highlights include having his work shortlisted in the 2019 Footscray Tertiary Art Prize, and exhibiting and selling artworks at The Changing Canvas, Glenelg, Adelaide and in Umbrella’s 2019 Pop Up North Queensland (PUNQ) festival.
Please note that Nigel will take breaks throughout the course of the day. Staff will be monitoring the stream throughout the day so feel free to ask questions or make comments and we will pass them on when we can. The stream will also be recorded to create a film of the work’s creation, which will be uploaded here after the event. Invite your friends to join via the Facebook event.
Commissioned through Creative Sparks, this project receives generous support from the Regional Arts Development Fund. RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Townsville City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
