Artist in Residence

Expect the unexpected at Museum of Brisbane as artists reimagine Brisbane’s stories. Our Artist in Residence program threads distinct voices and perspectives into our vibrant galleries and inspires creative dialogue with audiences.

The program taps into the dynamism that artists and creative practitioners bring to our city. The program promotes growth and the exchange of knowledge and excellence and provokes conversations about the evolving life of our city. Interactions with creative practitioners reinterpret our collection and offer opportunities for artistic research and community engagement. Audiences are offered insights into creative processes and can share conversations with artists at work.

The residency provides artists with the opportunity to present their work to a large and culturally diverse audience, and to research, engage and collaborate with Museum of Brisbane and our connected community.

The Artist in Residence program is supported by Tim Fairfax AC.
