Outdoor Gallery

Brisbane City Council's Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane's laneways and city streets into imaginative, curious and engaging spaces. Comprising light boxes, banners, vitrines and evening projections, the Outdoor Gallery displays art outside in city streets, instead of inside on gallery walls.

Women's Work, APT9 Kids and a number of other artworks are currently exhibiting in the Outdoor Gallery.

Women's Work

From 12 August to 1 December 2019, experience the Women's Work exhibition curated by Brisbane Art Matriachs! (BAM), a collective of up-and-coming female arts leaders working towards bridging the gap for women exhibiting in public spaces.

Women's Work celebrates the empowering artforms and originality of female creatives through a series of outdoor installations, guided tours and talks. This exhibition is grounded in the belief that the work of all women, within the realm of the domestic and beyond, is invaluable.

Find out more about each Women's Work artist and their artwork.
