BrisAsia Festival 2016

WHEN : 7th -21st February, 2016
WHERE : Eagle Lane, Brisbane City

Explore Brisbane’s laneways with Weaving Our Heritage a visual street art installation which will transform Eagle Lane in Brisbane’s CBD into an outdoor gallery.

Weaving our Heritage will be on show from the 7-21 February and is a vibrant burst of colour and pattern in the heart of Brisbane’s business district.

This free event is part of the annual BrisAsia Festival which celebrates the best of Asian art and culture throughout February.

The installation features two Brisbane artists inspired by contemporary culture and Asian textile and decorative traditions.

Vanghoua Anthony Vue’s work draws on his Hmong heritage through the use of vibrant industrial tape works, and Elysha Rei (Gould) makes intricate paper-cuts and paste-ups that allude to her Japanese ancestry.

Over the installation period visitors can discover more about the artists and their works by downloading the Story City App www.storycity.com.au
