Brisbane is gearing up to house a heap of awesome art installations in the not-so-distant future. Botanica will light up the Botanic Gardens at the end of May, Chiharu Shiota’s astonishing work of red and black wool will hit GOMA in mid-June. Now, we’ve got the news that Curiocity Brisbane is back.
After wildly popular events in 2019 and 2021, Curiocity is making a return, along with twenty interactive artworks popping up around South Bank, the City Botanic Gardens and CBD, as well as the Cultural Precinct in South Brisbane. The festival, which was postponed earlier this year due to the floods, is finally happening from Friday, June 24 through till Sunday, July 10.
This year, if Curiocity’s art installations are anything like previous events, then we’re in for a real treat. On the line up of digital and physical works, you can expect to see Antarctic icebergs, a giant bird’s nest, an immersive light and soundscape experience, and more. You’ll also be able to interact with an animation piece that captures your face and puts it in the picture.
Best of all, Curiocity Brisbane is free to go and admire all the dazzling displays on offer. To check out what’s on offer at this year’s festival, click here.
