Who said the streets of Brisbane were bland?

The Razzle Dazzle exhibition has been curated by McCarthySwann Projects, offering a number of talks and tours.

The artworks consider the nature of public space and individuals within it – particularly people who, for different reasons, may feel hyper-visible or invisible.

The curators Amy-Clare McCarthy and Kieran Swann considered the concepts of identity, spectacle and camouflage – using patterns, colour and adornment to either hide, exaggerate or transform to space.

The pieces of art are comprised of lightboxes, banners, vitrines and nighttime projections.

Whether you’re artsy or just appreciate a bit of colour the Razzle Dazzle exhibition is a perfect chance to explore beautiful Brisbane and appreciate artistry along the way.
