/Art Exhibition & Auction

What happens when advertising’s greatest creative minds meet the humble bowling pin? CEX.

It sounds provocative, but get your mind out of the gutter! CEX is a creative challenge centered around the humble bowling pin. Members of Brisbane’s advertising community have transformed bowling pins into extraordinary works of art. It is all in the name of charity, with proceeds going to Youngcare, an important organisation who give young aussies with high care needs the choice to live in age-appropriate housing.

Showcasing Brisbane’s creative talent, the ‘CEX’ exhibition and auction features pieces from Animators, Designers, Editors and VFX artists from Cutting Edge, in addition to pins from advertising agencies, creatives and freelancers. We have been blessed with contributions from PublicisQ, Clemenger, BCM and Y&R, all lending their artistic talents to support Youngcare.


The pins are on exhibition at Cutting Edge’s Brisbane studio from Monday 19 March. The exhibition is a revolving display featuring different works each week. Part 1 is currently on display!



Each pin is truly individual, inspirational, and fascinating. The auction is your opportunity to own a unique work of art, and a chance to support the important work of Youngcare.
