Leading local female artists and designers are taking over the inner-city streetscape for the Women’s Work art exhibit in Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery.

Council is teaming with curators Brisbane Art Matriarchs! (BAM!), Griffith University Queensland College of Art and The Culprit Club to deliver the captivating project that features works from 12 artists, designers and curators across 10 inner-city sites including Fish Lane, King George Square and Edward Street.

A dedicated team of talented Brisbane women created Women's Work. The project showcases the diverse, high-level talent of women artists and designers working in South East Queensland.

Invigorating public space in the Brisbane Central Business District

The Outdoor Gallery aims to break down barriers to contemporary art by:

  • invigorating outdoor public spaces with artwork
  • sharing the work of artists and designers with a wide and diverse audience 
  • transforming Brisbane's laneways and streets into vibrant, engaging public art spaces.

Women's Work will feature in an Edward Street glass vitrine, on lightboxes and banners, and be projected onto landmarks like the William Jolly Bridge.

Council is committed to investing in Brisbane's flourishing cultural scene, supporting a creative hub that fosters talent, supports the local creative economy and offers residents and visitors more things to see and do across the city.

As part of the exhibit, you can enjoy public programs and events including guided walks of the Outdoor Gallery and talks with artists and curators.
