tinygold was an artist-run project that curated the annual program ‘Tales from the Cold Ghost’ from 2007-2009. Our aim was to utilise distressed and empty spaces to showcase the works of local emerging artists, and in the third year we expanded to conduct professional development programs such as artist talks, arts industry consultations, panels, fashion shows, publications and musical performances that championed local talent.
tinygold began as a proactive response towards the shared frustration felt by many Gold Coast artists and university students regarding lack of space and resources. The show’s name Tales from the Cold Ghost (TFCG) became an action, giving local emerging artists the platform to tell stories and ideas through art, and to showcase them in our own backyard – a city that was perceived as a cultural-ghost town. More.
Mariam and Megan decided to coffin tinygold in 2009 so they could focus on full-time arts and curating projects. Thank you for your interest and continued support!To receive free backcopies of our catalogues and invites please email tinygoldATgmail.com or on our Facebook.
