Deeper Than You is a quarterly art exhibition held at Miami Marketta. The concept of Deeper Than you revolves around the idea of needing more than just yourself to create a cultural movement.
The project was founded by Liam Boue, Creation Saffigna, Keilyn Keith and a core group of artists. These exhibitions have been running since September 2018 and focus on developing a unique artist collective on the Gold Coast.
Deeper Than You aims to become a flagpole for the unique art and artists emerging from unlikely places.
This is a Free Event.
