Quiet Afternoons: World of Wonder

Visitors are invited to explore World of Wonder: Margot McKinney with reduced sensory stimuli.

During this two-hour session, visitors can explore the exhibition with raised lighting, reduced audio tracks and still projections.

World of Wonder: Margot McKinney unearths stories about Margot’s illustrious career and the miracles of nature that make up her designs. From the coral reef in our own backyard to the rich palette of colours found on safari in Tanzania, this exhibition will be a mesmerising celebration of the complex and profoundly beautiful environments and materials that have inspired her designs. Here you’ll find opulent opals, lustrous pearls and rare gems like the intensely blue tanzanite, lilac amethyst and pink tourmalines.

World of Wonder is the fourth exhibition in MoB’s identity series that celebrates creative greats who call Brisbane home, including Mao’s Last Dancer the Exhibition: A Portrait of Li Cunxin, a spotlight on designers Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson for Pattern & Print: Easton Pearson Archive, and High Rotation – an exhibition celebrating over 100 musicians over the last three decades. Join us as we journey through a treasure trove of memories and mastery and let Margot’s designs and inspiration transport you to a world of wonder.

Sensory warning: This exhibition contains large-scale video projections and reflective mirrored surfaces.
Note: Bookings are essential.
