Art projection: Hailey Atkin's, 'Whither Weather'
Brisbane City Council has an extensive public art collection of approximately 500 diverse objectsby local, national and internationally renowned artists. This diverse collection comprises artworks in a mix of styles and materials ranging from traditional bronze sculptures to large scale contemporary artworks with lighting programs.
For the first time Council has commissioned digital artworks for the city’s growing public art collection by four leading and emerging local, female artists which was launched in 2020 at Council’s newest Outdoor Gallery location, Howard Smith Wharves.
The portability of this part of the wider Public Art Collection allows for the artworks to be displayed multiple times across varying locations. This innovative art procurement takes the artwork to the people rather than the other way around.
Four artworks will be on rotation at Howard Smith Wharves from 22 November to 3 December.

About the artwork
Whither Weather extends upon the Sunny Side Up's curatorial theme of 'celebrating Brisbane as a subtropical city' to present a short journey through place both real and imagined - a place populated by bright, abstract, weird and wonky objects that are an ode to the South East Queensland summer. As a response to the sculptural works already commissioned for the Sunny Side Up exhibition, the animation incorporates similar forms, colours and textures to reveal new perspectives and ways of interpreting them. Forms are deconstructed and recombined to create new forms that reference things such as Brisbane's hilly suburbs, hot summer days and subtropcial thunderstorms.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
