• David Pestorius Projects

    Since the late 1970s David Pestorius has been culturally active in his hometown of Brisbane, Australia, initially as a participant in the local punk/new wave scene, which produced such important groups as The Saints and The Go-Betweens. He performed in bands, photographed and wrote about them for local and national music publications, and between 1980–82 hosted a regular weekly new release program on radio 4ZZZ-FM.

    In the second half of the 1980s Pestorius began to work closely with visual artists, taking the formative experience of punk and allowing it to shape his activities in the world of art. Over the last two decades he has realised numerous projects, often in co-operation with major cultural institutions internationally, featuring a wide range of cultural producers, including artists, architects, writers and musicians.

    In 1993 Pestorius commenced to represent artists and work as a gallerist hosting public exhibitions in a range of spaces owned or controlled by him. Since 1996 he has participated in major international as well as local art fairs, including Art Chicago (1996, 1997), Coronation Motel Fair, Brisbane (1996), Art Basel (1997), Art Forum Berlin (1997–2006), Auckland Art Fair (2010), Sydney Contemporary (2013), and Spring 1883, Melbourne/Sydney (2014, 2015). In 1999, Pestorius was the first foreign gallerist to open a showroom in the new Berlin-Mitte, while later that same year he began to host exhibitions and events at the Pestorius Sweeney House in the inner Brisbane suburb of Hamilton. His most recent gallery enterprise, Australian Fine Arts, was launched in Brisbane’s official art precinct of Fortitude Valley in 2015.

    Content creators, conversation curators.

    POPSART is working with TRACE to curate energised conversations that enhance the audience’s experience of the TRACE exhibition. This work creates a complementary artistic layer, extruding the artists’ ideas to reach out to a broader audience across space and time.

    POPSART takes viewers to the heart of the arts via one-on-one interviews with artists at openings, exhibitions, launches, studios, awards, or anywhere else... Real conversations, real time.

    POPSART was devised by artist Rebecca McIntosh (Bec Mac) drawing on decades of experience and knowledge of working with live art event LOVE TV, radio and video work. BEC MAC’S artist statement: “My goal is to engage the community in conversations around passion, gender, sexuality, race, class and the creative process. My process is journalistic: researching and developing a series of questions that will reveal insights and understandings into the artistic practice while referring to the larger social cultural framework. My presentation is performative, drawing on “television” tropes such as a hand held microphone with a flag and show branding on it, glamorous clothes, and a down the barrel of the camera presentation. This makes “POPSART live” a theatrical moment, activating the space and bringing another element of excitement to the event.”

    Co-producer and camera operator Caroline Gardam is an internationally published writer and editor, content director/producer, environmental campaigner, and communications strategist. As publisher and editor of Brisbane magazine minni, Caroline chronicled Brisbane’s emerging arts and culture milieu.
