Art at QUT Library

QUT Art Museum has generously loaned the Library three striking artworks from the QUT Art Collection, each one by a Queensland or Northern NSW  practitioner.

Japanese-Australian artist Hiromi Tango’s vibrant installation ‘NatureNurture’ is displayed opposite the stairwell on Level 5 of Gardens Point Library.

On Level 2 of Kelvin Grove Library, in the walkway between R and E Blocks, you can see the late Tom Risley’s chair sculpture,  and a print from Leah King -Smith’s 2004 ‘Beyond Capture’ series (many of us would know Dr King-Smith in her capacity as  a Creative Industries lecturer at QUT).

Drop in and take a look next time you’re on campus. There are more artworks to come, courtesy of this partnership between the Library and QUT Art Museum.
