The Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane's laneways and city streets into imaginative, fun and engaging spaces. Comprising light box displays, wall banners and projections, the outdoor gallery allows new art to be displayed in the city streets that would typically be confined to a gallery.

Current artworks in Hutton Lane, Eagle Lane, Edison Lane, Giffin lane, Irish lane, Edward Street vitrines, King George Square Student Art Gallery and Fish Lane are part of the Maiwar contemporary art program 2018. Maiwar (may-wah) is the traditional word used to refer to the waterway more commonly known as the Brisbane River. This collection offers rich and diverse responses to the artist's connection to Maiwar and the surrounding areas.

The following laneway works are part of Brisbane City Council's temporary outdoor galleries.
