Sometimes, a venue dedicated to pushing art lovers out of their comfort zone has to take its own advice and step out of its own comfort zone. When Metro Arts is involved, it's called a takeover. Every now and then, the CBD venue throws open the doors to a mini-festival of creativity, and lets them run the show.

(The View) From Here: A Small Perspective on Big Ideas is the latest, and it's throwing a host of contemporary art at audiences. Sure, solo work, intimate engagements and participatory experiences don't sound all that different — but sexperts talking about pleasure, hardware supplies seen in a new light, a unique Brisbane walking tour and an exploration of the way modern relationships have become transactional are all on the agenda.

So is an installation that draws upon private moments of humiliation and an examination of the politics surrounding hair, and, as always, the list goes on. Expect the unexpected, basically, in this takeover of all six stories of Metro Arts.
