Keeping It Real
3 Aug to 27 Nov 2021, entry is free
Keeping It Real is the work of museums. We collect and preserve objects, images and documents not as professional hoarders, but to share the true and tangible evidence of our collective past in ways that help us to understand the present and imagine the future.
This exhibition sets out to provoke wonder, encouraging big ideas to flow from conversations about small things. Seven optimistic calls to action make unexpected connections between objects from the QPAC Museum collection.
Tony Gould Gallery is located on the ground floor at the entrance to the Cremorne Theatre, facing the river and about half way along the side of our building. The closest parking is at the Performing Arts Car Park, although the Grey Street entrance to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is also close by.
We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations Peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
