Sunny Side Up
This new outdoor exhibition splashes artworks about Brisbane across the city's public spaces.
Brisbanites, if you've been seeing this fair town of ours in a completely different light this year, that's to be expected. After spending so much time at home and indoors during lockdown, even the most familiar places around the city look a little different. So, you're probably paying them more attention than usual.
While you're peering around the place, you might just spot some great art. Brisbane City Council runs a free outdoor gallery program, and it has been busy in 2020. First came Razzle Dazzle — and, next, Sunny Side Up will be brightening up a heap of public spaces, all while pondering Brissie's sunny and subtropical identity.
From Monday, November 30–Sunday, April 18, you'll be feasting your eyes on pieces by Monica Rohan, Charlie Hillhouse, Julia Scott Green, Parallel Park, Jordan Azcune, Phoebe Paradise, Holly Anderson, Kinly Grey, Amelia Hine and Hailey Atkins. They're all emerging Brisbane artists under the age of 35, and the whole show has been curated by fellow up-and-comers Alex Holt and Sarah Thomson.
It's all free, obviously, and includes everything from photography, sculpture and video to animation and illustration. Fish Lane, Edward Street, Irish Lane, Queen Street — they're just some of the places to head to.
