Brave New Worlds and These Frozen Moments are a pair of public installations; leading over fifty of Brisbane’s most exciting artists, writers, and creatives to inject city spaces with contemporary art, new writing, and immersive installations.
From 19-22 July 2017, BRAVE NEW WORLDS took over the fiery red stairway of Jacob’s Ladder, between Spring Hill and the CBD. Featuring the work of twenty Brisbane visual artists printed on flags and raised to the skies, BRAVE NEW WORLDS meditates on world-visioning, the flag as unifying and divisive, and personal symbols in public space. Come see their workfly high and consider – what brave new world do you want to live in?
One week later, on 28 July, THESE FROZEN MOMENTS filled Metro Arts’ Carriageway. Featuring new writing from over thirty of Brisbane’s writers and creatives, this installation layers cascading voices whispering short stories, monologues and micro-fictions – time suspended, lives changing; glimpses into other worlds, into frozen moments.
