    About the Exhibitions

    Jasmine Togo-Brisby is an Australian South Sea Islander artist who conjures with an iconography of tall ships, decorative ceilings, and crow feathers. It Is Not a Place features two major new commissions—a sculpture and a video—exploring her identity and the impacts of the Pacific slave trade.

    Our new annual exhibition Platform showcases new commissions by emerging Queensland artists under forty, enabling their work to reach wider audiences. In 2024, we present new works by Miguel AquilizanMia Boe, and Sarah Poulgrain.

    Angela Su’s pseudo-documentary The Magnificent Levitation Act of Lauren O tells the story of her fictional alter-ego Lauren O, a mysterious circus performer drawn to levitation practices. The centrepiece of her show Arise at the Hong Kong Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2022, the video links the perils of flight to the recesses of the mind.
