The festival is a fabulous celebration of visual art and design celebrating the city’s creative talent, with its centrepiece BRISANE ART DESIGN exhibition at Museum of Brisbane from May 10 - Aug 11.

Museum of Brisbane Director Renai Grace said BAD will showcase the artists and designers of Brisbane - those who have established national and international careers from the city, as well as those who have made their homes elsewhere but continue to be influenced by Brisbane.

“We are commissioning exciting new works from Justene Williams, Craig & Karl, Susan Hawkins and Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan to mention just a few, and there will be more announcements about artists and commissions over the coming months,” said Renai Grace.

“BAD will revel in the joy, wonder, curiosity and conversation that goes hand-in-hand with cutting edge contemporary art and design.”
