Tall Tales and Other Adventures is a visual research project partnered by USQ, Dogwood Crossing and Flying Arts Alliance Inc., exploring the notion of creative resilience within regional contexts through innovative and diverse 3D art practices. This exhibition catalogue presents a series of essays that provides an important platform for visual art and cross-disciplinary discourses on studio research within an academic environment and its capacity to navigate and engage diverse communities. More specifically, studio research is addressed in terms of the exhibition's curatorial premise on fictional storytelling drawing from the literary reference of 'a willing suspension of disbelief' in order to engage contemporary audiences. The publication marks an important creative contribution of emerging artists on a professional contemporary art platform as their works tour across regional galleries (USQ Arts Gallery March 2014, Dogwood Crossing in Miles, May 2014 and Texas Regional Gallery, 2015)
