March 29th, 2019
Brisbane Art Design or BAD to those in the know is a celebration of visual art and design, examining and showcasing the creative talent of the sub-tropical city. The event will take place over 17-days from 10 – 26 May with a program of exhibitions, installations, talks, workshops and studio visits.
An initiative of the Museum of Brisbane, its director Renai Grace says BAD will showcase the artists and designers through a Brisbane lens – including those creatives who have established national and international careers from the city, or those who have made their homes elsewhere but continue to be influenced by Brisbane.
“We want to push the boundaries of people’s understanding of art and design, challenge their perceptions and directly engage them in conversations about the role of art and design in society, and sometimes in the making itself. BAD will revel in the joy, wonder, curiosity and conversation that goes hand-in-hand with cutting edge contemporary art and design.”
The centrepiece of BAD will be a major exhibition at Museum of Brisbane that will run through to August 2019, featuring established and emerging artists experimenting across a range of mediums: robotics, interactive art, video, installation, ceramics, jewellery and painting.
“We are commissioning exciting new works from Justene Williams, Craig & Karl, Susan Hawkins and Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan to mention just a few, and there will be more announcements about artists and commissions over the coming months,” says Renai Grace.
Brisbane Art Design will run 10 – 26 May 2019, find out more at brisbaneartdesign.com.au.
