Rearranged: Art of the Flower
Brisbane has a strong culture of artists using floral imagery to tell stories of this place. In a space reminiscent of a quintessential Queenslander house, Rearranged: Art of the Flower invites visitors to stroll through a lush collection of paintings, textiles, sculptures, ceramics and new media.
Commonly associated with domestic settings and still life compositions, flowers continue to be reimagined and evoke contemporary concerns. Rearranged beholds the beauty of this ever-popular subject and looks beyond to explore notions of place, memory and history. The exhibition illuminates diverse perspectives, always acknowledging that flowers have long been cared for by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as an integral part of Country.
Journey through the house, out the back and into the garden, and revel in the beautiful blooms of Brisbane.
Rearranged: Art of the Flower is will blossom at Museum of Brisbane from November 25, 2023 to August 11, 2024. The best part? Tickets are free! Head to the Museum of Brisbane website to learn more.
