Made for this World: Contemporary Art and the Places We Build

26 November 2005 – 19 February 2006
Gallery 5 & 6, and Watermall, Queensland Art Gallery

‘Made for this World’ examined the constructed environments we live in – our homes, streets, buildings, suburbs and cities. Through contemporary art, children discovered new ways of seeing, making and imagining their everyday surroundings.

Presented across several major gallery spaces, the exhibition featured works on paper, installation, painting and video by more than 20 Australian and international artists from the Gallery’s Collection. Integral to the exhibition was the inclusion of four large-scale interactive art works by international contemporary artists. These works gave children plenty of hands-on opportunities to work with materials and turn their imaginative ideas into reality.

With easy-to-read labels, an activity booklet and the exhibition mascot, Kitty the Alley Cat as tour guide, children were taken on a creative journey to rediscover the familiar places where we live, work and play.
