Be part of something extraordinary. Walk across a vast, rocky, indoor riverbed created by Olafur Eliasson. See animals from around the world gather together to drink from Cai Guo-Qiang’s brilliant blue waterhole. Gaze at Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s snowman, frozen despite Brisbane’s summer heat. Reflect on the cultural traditions of bodies of water, including the Brisbane River, with Judy Watson; and consider the long history of our reliance on water, illustrated by Megan Cope’s re-created midden.
From major immersive experiences to smaller-scale treasures by Australian and international artists, ‘Water’ highlights this precious resource and aims to spark conversations on the environmental and social challenges faced by the world today.
