Hello 2019, a tech-fueled summer program launch!

The Cube kick-started the 2019 Summer Holiday Program with a tech-fueled Family Fun Day on Saturday 12 January. This event provided a perfect opportunity to share the new Cube projects and showcase our talented program partners with Brisbane families.

The crowds turned out to test drive the Wind tunnel and Water tank, two new screen projects that the Cube studio developed in 2018. It was fantastic to see visitors trialling which objects float the best in the Water tank (my bet is on the rubber duck!), and testing aerodynamics in the Wind tunnel simulation.

Unpacking the development of Nature imagined

Q&A with Vanessa Van Ooyen and Simon Harrison

Nature imagined is an exciting new collaboration and will be displayed in two mediums: in the William Robinson Gallery and digitally on The Cube. This unique interaction of art and science provides an inspiring and explorative digital experience and this week we talk to Vanessa Van Ooyen, Senior Curator of the William Robinson Gallery, and Simon Harrison, The Cube Studio Manager about the development of Nature imagined.


Vanessa: The William Robinson Gallery and The Cube are two very different venues to showcase William Robinson’s work, how did the idea for Nature imagined come about? And can you tell us how Robinson’s knowledge of the works has informed the project?

As the gallery is focused solely on William Robinson’s work, we are interested in finding innovative ways of exploring his practice and engaging a wider audience with it. We are fortunate enough to be a part of a multidisciplinary university with fantastic resources such as The Cube that allows for exciting collaborations. Both venues have a strong focus on education, so it was only natural for a partnership between the spaces to showcase Bill’s work to its full potential. Read more
