Brisbane’s Best Art Galleries
by: May 18th, 2014
There are many art galleries in Brisbane now, so choosing which ones to visit during your stay could be a daunting task. Here are some of the best to pick from:
- The Queensland Art Gallery: Gallery of Modern Art is located on Brisbane’s South Bank. It contains works from artists throughout history from both Australia and overseas and its art collections should not be missed.
- Fortitude Valley houses the Philip Bacon Art Gallery, crucial to Brisbane’s artistic development. bmag.com.au describes the Philip Bacon Art Gallery as one of Australia’s foremost galleries.
- Also in Fortitude Valley, Lust For Life Gallery houses more than traditional art. As well as the inhouse espresso bar, Lust For Life contains a tattoo parlour for visitors to start or add to their own body art collection.
- Bleeding Heart Art Gallery also steps outside the traditional boundaries of an art gallery. Here, social enterprise is encouraged and profits from the gallery, gift shop and cafe are used to support the local community and charities.
