Botanica | Brisbane City Council


Leading local and national artists transformed Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens into a temporary outdoor gallery from 6-15 April 2018 as part of Botanica - Brisbane's first major outdoor contemporary art exhibition.

About Botanica

Botanica invited residents and visitors to walk amongst the majestic setting of the gardens' lawns, trees and lagoons by day and by night, and uncover a diverse program of playful interventions and reflective installations. This free event also featured a series of workshops, artist talks, children's activities and live events and was open from 12 noon to 8pm daily. 

Botanica was a highlight of the Commonwealth Games Event City Festival 2018 celebrations, and embraced the cultural vibrancy and outdoor lifestyle unique to Brisbane.

Botanica was produced by Brisbane City Council and supported by the Queensland Government.
