Over 150 artists and designers will take over Brisbane this May for the inaugural BRISBANE ART DESIGN (BAD) festival. From Friday, May 10, this new festival will showcase emerging and established talents in 25 spaces throughout the city — from the festival hub at the Museum of Brisbane and across the CBD, West End, Fortitude Valley, Woolloongabba and surrounds.

A multi-dimensional exhibition at the Museum of Brisbane will sit at the heart of the festival, featuring works across robotics, object design, performance art, video, installation, virtual reality, ceramics, sculpture and painting. BAD@MoB will include new commissions from artists and designers like Justene Williams, Nicolette Johnson, Craig and Karl and Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan.

The BAD program will also include Shared Connections, a series of outdoor installations, projections, tours, workshops and conversations by First Nations artists including Michael Cook, Sonja Carmichael, Dale Harding, Delvene Cockatoo-Collins, Tamika Grant-Iramu.

Also on the agenda is the BNE DESIGN market with jewellery, homewares, fashion, ceramics, stationery, accessories and more for sale on Friday, May 24, from 4–9pm, in Reddacliff Place. There'll be food trucks and a live performance by gypsy jazz band The Van Dijk.

Meanwhile, you can take part in roaming street and public art tours through various city precincts on foot, on a bike or camera in hand, meditate in QUT's The Cube or channel your creative skills in a spray painting and screen printing workshops.

BAD runs from Friday, May 10 to Sunday, May 26. The Museum of Brisbane's BAD@MoB exhibition will continue until Sunday, August 11. To check out the full program and register for workshops, visit the BAD website.
