Discover an architect’s perspective on QAGOMA’s newly reopened Australian Collection in this special after-hours tour led by Kevin O’Brien, founder of Kevin O’Brien Architects, a Brisbane-based, award-winning architecture practice in Queensland, Australia.

The reimagined Australian Collection captures major historical moments from first contact to colonisation, and exploration to immigration. Bringing the Indigenous and contemporary Australian collections together with the gallery’s historical holdings, the display emphasizes stories about Queensland and Brisbane from the region’s own perspective. The Australian Collection is QAGOMA’s first step toward returning the Queensland Art Gallery building, as closely as possible, to the intended vision of architect Robin Gibson AO, an expansive, open space with clear sightlines throughout, lending each gallery a beautiful sense of connectedness to the whole.
