Science, art and tech take centre stage in the heart of Brisbane this winter

Curiocity Brisbane festival is making its return, with 20 immersive installations taking place around the city between Friday June 24 and Sunday July 10. A celebration of science, art and technology, this year’s Curiocity offers a program of “big ideas” curated by artist and academic, Jay Younger.

Taking place along Southbank and the Cultural Centre over the Goodwill Bridge and through the Queen Street Mall, the program encourages winter exploration.

Begin your tour at the State Library of Queensland, with artist Carol McGregor’s Acknowledging Place, a space for reflecting on the traditional land on which Curiocity takes place. Nearby you’ll find Kellie O’Dempsey’s Soft-body Adapters, which draws directly from the Queensland Museum of Natural History Archive to reimagine life underwater using the lens of the climate crisis, as well as Kirsten Baade’s Luminous Threads light art. A little further south down the river, María-Fernanda Cardoso’s The Origins of Art I and II’ explores the life of the Australian peacock spider.

Elsewhere, QMF and Textile Audio’s ‘City Symphony’ invites passers-by to hear the sounds of Brisbane through music and local stories. Taking real-time information and combining it with environmental data to generate storytelling experiences for each participant, this digital artwork provides your personal soundtrack to the city.

To browse the full program of artworks and to plan your trip through the city this winter, visit the Curiocity Brisbane 2022 website.
