Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane

Exhibition and Shows

15 Jun 2024 to 6 Oct 2024 Daily Event

Place, in Brisbane, is not a static thing. We are at a crucial point in Brisbane’s urban development, with extreme changes to the city predicted over the next decade.

With the city we know shifting so rapidly, this is the ideal moment to ask—what makes a place? Which sites are significant for individuals and communities and why? Are the landmarks we recognise as characterising the city today the same landmarks we’ll see in the future? And can memories make a place?

With these questions front of mind, ‘Making Place’ presents more than 100 historical and contemporary depictions of the Brisbane region from Museum of Brisbane’s Collections. They invite you to explore this ever-changing city through new eyes: from the past, to the present and into the future.

Become immersed in a newly commissioned sound artwork by Artist in Residence Lawrence English, Site Listening : Brisbane, that captures the city’s many soundscapes and surround yourself in the textures and nuance of Jenna Lee’s installation, Growing Place, illustrating her insightful reflection on ‘place’.

Artists featured include Judy Watson, Richard Randall, Noel McKenna, William Bustard, Vida Lahey, Jane Grealy, Danie Mellor, Kenneth Jack, Sam Fulbrook, Charles Lancaster, Robert Brownhall, Margaret Olley, Stephen Nothling, Margaret Cilento, Lloyd Rees, Paul Davies, Mia Boe and more.
