City in raz­zle daz­zle

- Arts · Brisbane · City of Brisbane · Brisbane City Council · Richard Bell

BRIS­BANE reg­u­larly punches above its weight when it comes to pub­lic art and Bris­bane City Coun­cil is pretty pro­gres­sive in that space.

Now they’re try­ing to turn the whole city into an art gallery (god bless them) from this week with Raz­zle Daz­zle, an ex­hi­bi­tion at nine sites around the city, fea­tur­ing 11 top con­tem­po­rary artists, ists, in­clud­ing the bad boy of f Indige­nous art, Richard Bell, Ger­wyn Davies (in­set), Luke Roberts, Jemima Wy­man and oth­ers.

Fish Lane, Hut­ton Lane, Ea­gle Lane and King Ge­orge Square are just a few of the lo­ca­tions where you can en­joy a free out­door art gallery us­ing the streets and laneways as a back­drop. It’s a ter­rific ini­tia­tive that will help brighten up the city and our mood.

There will be cu­ra­tor and artist-led walk­ing tours and Lord Mayor Adrian Schrin­ner says he hopes it will liven up things and have flow-on ef­fects for lo­cal busi­nesses, cafes and restau­rants.
