Cut Thumb ARI was founded in early 2015 by artists Lucy Forsberg and Callum Mcgrath to promote and support the creation of contemporary experimental art in Brisbane. Cut Thumb projects and exhibitions take place in an inner-city suburban backyard- utilising a garage and under-house space in lieu of a white cube.
Our program largely consists of solo one-night shows with a focus on new-media, video, installation and site specific works. Cut Thumb endeavours to actively contribute to the critical dialogue within the Brisbane contemporary art community and aims to strengthen discussion surrounding emerging experimental art.
In 2017 Cut Thumb have joined forces with The Laundry Artspace to become
Cut Thumb Laundry, a collaborative curatorial project and Metro Arts' 2017 Artist- Run Initiative in Residence.
