Blue Monaro
2015, The Walls Artspace
A collaborative exhibition between Bridie Gillman and Kylie Spear


Blue Monaro was a collaborative exhibition of new work by Brisbane artists Bridie Gillman and Kylie Spear. This exhibition responded to The Walls’ location in Miami, Gold Coast; one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations. Blue Monaro utilised objects associated with Miami's 'leisure lifestyle' in order to elicit experiences of sentimentality, seduction and awkwardness. Using the colour blue as a filter, this exhibition connected the physicality of overused materials with an imagined bodily history.
