BRISBANE ART DESIGN (BAD), is a celebration of visual art and design that will animate a network of parks, laneways, galleries, artist spaces and studios across the city from 10 – 26 May 2019.

Brisbane Art Design 2019

BRISBANE ART DESIGN will showcase the many talented artists and designers of Brisbane: those who have established national and international careers from the city, as well as those who have made their homes elsewhere but continue to be influenced by Brisbane.

BRISBANE ART DESIGN will celebrate the successes of the arts in Brisbane, but more importantly the individuals and their work within our city.

The centrepiece of the event will be a major exhibition at Museum of Brisbane from 10 May – 11 August 2019, featuring established and emerging artists experimenting across a range of mediums including robotics, performance art, video, installation, ceramics, jewellery and painting.

Museum of Brisbane is commissioning exciting new works from local artists including Justene Williams, Nicolette Johnson, Craig & Karl, and Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan.

From the Museum’s home at City Hall, BRISBANE ART DESIGN will spread across more than 25 locations throughout the CBD, West End, Highgate Hill, Fortitude Valley, South Brisbane, Woolloongabba and Bowen Hills, with the program including exhibitions, installations, projections, artist talks, workshops, studio visits, walking tours and performances.
