The Twenties - Avant-Garde Art Day

The Twenties - Avant-Garde Art Day

On February 15, 2020

Categories: Arts


Join us for a day of avant-garde fun for all the family at Hinkler Hall of Aviation. Artists and poets will be on hand to guide kids (or the whole family!) through sessions in collage, nonsensical poetry, silent film and other activities. No need to book, just drop in for some art fun inspired by the experimental and radical 1920s era.

About the Exhibition

The Avant-Garde Art Day is being held as part of ‘The Twenties’ – a free exhibition on display at Hinkler hall of Aviation from 7 February to 5 April 2020.

2020 marks the 100-year anniversary of one of the most radical decades of art and design.

As the world recovered from the carnage of the Great War, society changed at an unprecedented rate. The western world entered a new era of modernity, casting off tradition and applying new found freedoms to art, architecture and design. Radical changes were adopted in how people dressed, the music they listened to, what their homes looked like and even their mode of transport.

This exhibition brings together contemporary artists and designers from the Wide Bay, who continue to be inspired by the 1920s. The Twenties features handcrafted jewellery, ceramics, drawings, couture garments, collage, glass ware, photography and much more. This exhibition charts the continuing influence of Art Deco, Dadaism and other key historical movements.
