The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) will welcome visitors to Brisbane during the G20 Leaders Summit this November.

Our two galleries feature dynamic exhibitions and activities exploring the work of historical and contemporary artists from Australia and around the world. QAGOMA’s Children’s Art Centre presents interactive installations for young visitors and the Australian Cinémathèque showcases the work of influential filmmakers. Overlooking the Brisbane River in South Bank’s Cultural Precinct, the galleries offer cafes, modern dining and retail areas.

QAGOMA is internationally regarded as a leading institution for the collection and display of contemporary art from Asia, the Pacific and Australia.

As the G20 Summit draws closer, here are some details about closures around QAGOMA in South Bank and Brisbane CBD.
