Gather a group of people together, then ask them to describe Brisbane as seen their own eyes — and, no matter how many answers you get, it'll be full of wildly varying takes. That's what the Museum of Brisbane's new exhibition Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane presents, but via pieces of art depicting the city, with works dating back as far as the 1820s.
Obviously, Brissie has undergone a wealth of changes in the past two centuries — and if someone captured it on a canvas, it's likely on display here. As the name makes plain, there are at least 100 different views of the city included in this showcase, all helping to ponder this town of ours as it was, is and might be moving forward.
On display from Saturday, March 26, and running from 10am–5pm Tuesday–Sunday, Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane features work by an impressive list of talent. Gracing the walls: Judy Watson, Margaret Olley, Vida Lahey, Jane Grealy and Margaret Cilento, as well as Richard Randall, Noel McKenna, William Bustard, Charles Lancaster, Robert Brownhall, Stephen Nothling and Lloyd Rees. Entry is free.
