Dead Scary “Bring Out Your Dead”

After the overwhelming response to our previous annual exhibitions, we have now opened up our walls again, and invited a range of diverse artists to show work in what is now well established as a Valley favourite in the Brisbane gallery scene.

Dead Scary will feature over 30 Brisbane and interstate artists, showcasing work inspired by the scary, the creepy, and all things horror!

Axe-wielding animals, masked faces, contorted bodies, broken bones and burning flesh is just some of the twisted and terrifying subject matter being explored by this year’s artists.

The inescapable human contemplation of death throughout history, has led to the creation of some of the most infamous monsters and ghouls, with every culture creating their own version of the living dead; zombies, vampires, reanimated and reconstructed corpses, or ghosts. This is the guts, the raw bloody essence of a Dead Scary exhibition, and this year will be bigger, better and bloodier than ever before!

Join us for the opening festivities on Thursday the 29th of October 7-10pm.

Dress in your best deadibones finery and you’ll be in the running for a tattoo voucher from Lust for Life Tattoo’s supreme queen of the Dead Scary – artist, tattooist and owner of Lust for Life Tattoo, Aureole.

Come and enjoy ghastly (but delicious!) treats from the Sugarbomb girls and find out if you’re a ‘fraidy cat when things go bump in the night!Dead Scary will exhibit from 29th October to 14th December (open 7 days/wk).
