NEW PHILOSOPHER MAGAZINE ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF "GAAP - GALLERY OF ART AND PHILOSOPHY", WHICH WILL BE DEVOTED TO THE REPRESENTATION OF PHILOSOPHICAL IDEAS.
Hobart, Tasmania - 18 November 2019 - New Philosopher magazine is pleased to announce the acquisition of a private art gallery at 7 Campbell Street, Hobart, which will be transformed into the Gallery of Art & Philosophy (GAAP), a new breed of gallery that synthesises art and philosophical thinking.
Housed in a 19th century heritage-listed Victorian Gothic church, one of the last remaining structures of Hobart CBD’s heritage Wapping district along with the adjoining Theatre Royal, the gallery will exhibit work from artists featured in New Philosopher and Womankind magazines, and will become a centre for other artistic endeavours undertaken by the publishing house of New Philosopher and Womankind, Poet Press.
The gallery space is set over two levels and GAAP will be seeking submissions from artists for representation in the gallery whose works fulfil the philosophical requirements of GAAP, which include such aspects as the study of reality, existence, and the search for wisdom.
“GAAP is an initiative that has been brewing for more than a decade,” says Zan Boag, editor of New Philosopher magazine and director of GAAP. “Art that reflects the philosophical tensions of our time can help us make better sense of our world, our place in it, and where we are heading. Art awakens the senses and forces us to reconsider how we perceive the world, much like philosophy does.”
GAAP will officially open in 2020, with a call out to artists globally taking place over coming months. Artists will be represented in the gallery, in the print magazines, as well as at an accompanying online website, Collector.ie, to be launched at the same time as the physical gallery space.
