Folds of Belonging is an exhibition of international contemporary art. The work aims to interrupt your daily life as you walk the busy streets and laneways of Brisbane City.
Displaying the works of internationally celebrated artists, Fahd Burki (Pakistan), Motoyuki Daifu (Japan), Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thailand/USA), Shilpa Gupta (India) and Slavs and Tatars (Eurasia), the exhibition uses incidental encounters with these works to tackle questions surrounding one’s sense of belonging in a city.
Opening on Friday 27 January, the exhibition is accessible to the public at all hours, and uses Brisbane City Council’s Vibrant Laneways Outdoor Gallery sites including Eagle Lane, Fish Lane, King George Square Car Park and Hutton Lane.
Folds of Belonging is an initiative of Brisbane City Council and delivered as part of BrisAsia Festival 2017.
