Perspectives of Brisbane
June 9 - August 31 | 10:00am - 5:00pm| Free
Brisbane’s past is explored through seven themes relating to: Traditional Owners; convict history; European settlement; the People’s Place; the river; the natural environment and Brisbane on the world stage.
Through stories, facts, photos and film, Perspectives of Brisbane offers an insight into the people, moments and surroundings that set us apart from the rest.
Perspectives of Brisbane includes a new media work by international art star and local Aboriginal artist Judy Watson, water body 2012, exploring the ongoing connection of Traditional Owners to Country, and Beauty 2013, a filmic journey from the source of the Brisbane River (Maiwar in the Yuggara language) to Moreton Bay.
Accompanying this semi-permanent exhibition is a selection of panoramas from the Museum of Brisbane Collection. These sweeping views provide an intriguing overview of how Brisbane has grown since the early 1860s.
