An initiative of the Museum of Brisbane, the 2019 Brisbane Art Design (BAD) Festival is where art, design and the city of Brisbane collide over a 17-day festival of dynamic exhibitions, performances, talks, art tours, workshops and open studios. Held from 10 – 26 May 2019, BAD showcases more than 150 Brisbane creatives, from emerging talents who are carving their mark locally, to trailblazers who are redefining creativity on the international stage.
Bringing together a selection of recent acquisitions from the QUT Art Collection, ‘Vis-ability’ at the QUT Art Museum has been conceived as a project to broaden understanding of the lived experiences of people who are blind or have low vision. Drawing on research from QUT’s Creative Industries Faculty, ‘Vis-ability’ proposes alternative ways of engaging with the Art Collection, considering how technologies can deepen our understanding of vision, and challenge our sight-driven experience of art.
