Walk across a vast, rocky riverbed created by Olafur Eliasson. See animals from around the world gather together to drink from Cai Guo-Qiang’s brilliant blue waterhole. Gaze at Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s snowman frozen in Brisbane’s summer heat. Traverse a cloud of suspended gymnastic rings in a participatory artwork by William Forsythe. View the tidal currents rise and fall around Angela Tiatia. Reflect on the cultural traditions of bodies of water with Judy Watson, and on the long history of our reliance on water through Megan Cope’s re-created midden. “Water” invites you to do all this and much more.

“Water” opens this summer at GOMA, exploring the vital element which sustains all life on Earth. From major immersive experiences to smaller-scale treasures by Australian and international artists, the exhibition will highlight this precious resource and spark conversations about the environmental and social challenges we face today.

Dive deeper with guided tours of the exhibition at 11.00 am every day from 9 December, and at the Water Sundays events with tours for kids, talks and hands-on workshops. See below for other exhibition related events.

Up Late will return across two massive nights on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March 2020. View the line-up and read more.
