Setting the Stage

21 Sep 2019 – 22 Mar 2020
GOMA | Free

'Setting the Stage' looks at artists who reflect on the theatrical stage within their work, drawing on its construction, aesthetic language and purpose. The exhibition accompanies the Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF 2019) and brings together works across various media that use sets, props, costumes and staging.

BIFF runs 3–13 October 2019 at GOMA and selected partner venues across Brisbane.
