Joseph Breikers says
'Decade: Project for Future Alternatives' invites artists to reimagine the use of the gallery space and the possible directions of artist run practice.

Our first artist in this project is Joseph Breikers - please join us at the conclusion of this residency for the event 'No Joke/ End Times: A Listening Party' on Saturday 22 April, 7pm.

Boxcopy was formed in 2007 by seven art school graduates – Joseph Breikers, Channon Goodwin, Anita Holtsclaw, Daniel McKewen, Raymonde Rajkowsky, Marianne Templeton and Tim Woodward, initially operating from the basement (formerly Joe’s studio) of a Queenslander house in New Farm. Now, ten years later, Joe is taking over the current Boxcopy gallery as his working space over the month of April.

Joseph Breikers completed a Masters in Arts (Research) at the Queensland University of Technology in 2012. He was a recipient of funding under the Arts Queensland Individuals Fund in 2015 and in 2013 was the Queensland recipient of the Qantas Foundation Encouragement of Contemporary Art Award. In 2011 Joseph was awarded an Arts Queensland Career Development grant to undertake a residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland. Key exhibitions and projects include, 'Eight Embarrased Males' (Metro Arts, 2016), 'Goma Q: Contemporary Queensland Art' (QAGOMA, 2015), 'Fresh Cut 2013: Part 1' (Institute of Modern Art, 2013), 'Qaphqa' (Ryan Renshaw, 2011), 'Regards, the Pit' (Metro Arts, 2011), and 'Acoustic and Luminous Effects' (DB Projects, 2010, curated by Amanda Rowell).
