Silver

15th November - 27th April

WHEN : 15th November – 27th April
WHERE : Museum of Brisbane

Six pairs of Queensland’s finest visual artists collaborate for the first time for Silver. Each duo — a leading photographer and artisan jeweller — consider the differences and commonalities in their practices to present new artworks inspired by our city.

In Silver, the artists have explored the use of this precious metal during the creative process to shed new light on the historical significance of silver in art forms. The works reflect on the many stories that hold Brisbane’s past and present together including the social traditions of Brisbane life in a bygone era, the threads of our Aboriginal past that influence today and historical photographs, medals, and icons of Australiana.
