Best known for his detailed figurative sculpture, Stephen Hart has developed his career utilising the traditional technique of hand-carving timber to examine and express the strengths and virtues of humanity, the individual’s place in society and our collective responsibility.

Stephen Hart: Fellow Humans

In Fellow Humans Hart looks more closely at 20 individuals who make up his immediate community or have come to his attention, many of whom have made their own contribution to the creative life of our city.

By exploring individuals, he not only finds their unique characteristics but also the common elements that join us together. Stephen Hart: Fellow Humans is part of Document, an ongoing series of exhibitions that uncover how artists, photographers and observers view and record Brisbane’s landscape, history and culture.


Museum of Brisbane’s education program, Engage, aims to open minds, entertain and excite students.
