Brisbane has been brimming with art and exhibitions in 2022. And by the looks of it, 2023 will be no different. Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art is set to host some striking exhibitions next year, one of them being Fairy Tales, a striking wonderland of sculptures, installations, paintings, fashion, and more.
The Brisbane-only exhibition explores the key themes utilised in fairy tales throughout history, such as coming-of-age tales, gender and otherness, bravery and justice, loyalty and humility, as well as cunning and aspiration.
You can expect to see these topics showcased through mesmerising art pieces. Giant tree sculptures, magical animals, wicked witches, mirrors, castles and pumpkins, just to name a few.
Artists from around the world appear on the line up for Fairy Tales, from Yayoi Kusama and Patricia Piccinini to Kiki Smith, Jana Sterbak and Ron Mueck.
While the fascination exhibition won’t open until December next year, it’ll surely be worth the wait. It’s expected that tickets will go on sale sometime in mid-2023, so we’ll keep you updated.
In the meantime, check out what’s on and upcoming at GOMA to get your art and culture fix until then.
