Exhibition and Shows

7 Dec 2019 to 26 Apr 2020

Walk across a vast, rocky riverbed created by Olafur Eliasson; see predator and prey gather to drink together from Cai Guo-Qiang’s brilliant blue waterhole; gaze at Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s snowman frozen in Brisbane’s summer heat; traverse a cloud of suspended gymnastic rings in a participatory artwork by William Forsythe; view the tidal currents rise and fall around Angela Tiatia; reflect on the cultural traditions of bodies of water, including the Brisbane River, with Judy Watson; and on the long history of our reliance on water through Megan Cope’s re-created midden.

When ‘Water’ opens this summer at GOMA, visitors are invited to explore this vital element which sustains all forms of life on Earth. From major immersive experiences to smaller-scale treasures by Australian and international artists, the exhibition will highlight this precious resource and spark conversations about the environmental and social challenges we face today.
