Micro Histories Exhibition Tour

7 February – 28 April 2019

Artworks and artefacts are paired with buildings by six of Brisbane’s most exciting architectural firms in Micro Histories, an exhibition exploring the relationship between architecture, art, people and place.

Co-curated with Cameron Bruhn, Head of Architecture at The University of Queensland, Micro Histories celebrates the work of Brisbane architects and the inspiration that they find in the environment, community and history of the city. Each of the new buildings is presented using models, images and drawings and displayed alongside artworks and objects that tell a story about Brisbane’s culture and built environment.

Explore design processes and their practical and aesthetic applications in an interactive and immersive setting. A guided exhibition tour enables students to develop critical and creative thinking skills in The Arts and Technologies, and facilitates a deeper engagement and understanding of the artworks.

Augment your Brisbane social history immersion with a visit to our Perspectives of Brisbane exhibition.
