Educators Summer Program Preview

Educators are invited to join us online for a preview of MoB’s upcoming programs!

Join us as we dive into MoB’s upcoming exhibitions, programs and learn experiences, then go behind the scenes with our latest Artist in Residence, Gordon Hookey.

For his residency, Gordon Hookey has recreated an installation of posters from his Yeronga studio. The array of posters reflects the artist’s experience, travels and interests and has provided artistic inspiration for some of his most recognised works. Educators will enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes moment from Gordon as he shares deeper insights about his practice and this thought-provoking installation with Learn Specialist, Nina Woodrow.

As our Summer 22/23 program begins to heat up, we invite educators to unwind and discover programs ripe with opportunities for inspiring students (and yourselves!).

Don’t miss out on our final Educator event for 2022!

Note: This event will take place online via zoom.


MoB’s Artist in Residence Program is supported by Tim Fairfax AC.

About Gordon Hookey

Gordon Hookey is a Waanyi artist born in Cloncurry, Western Queensland, currently based in Brisbane. Known for his large-scale paintings and protest banners, his work offers a biting satire of Australian culture and politics. Distinctive in its vibrancy, Gordon’s work often combines figurative characters with iconic symbols and bold sections of text. Through his idiosyncratic visual language, Gordon explicitly attacks established hierarchies, while working to strengthen the position of those who have been marginalised. Gordon’s work is held in major collections across Australia, and he remains a proud member of Queensland’s leading Indigenous arts collective, proppaNOW.

Gordon’s touring exhibition A MURRIALITY, a three-decade survey, is currently showing at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
