Elhigrah: Stories from the Brisbane Sudanese Community

January 23, 2005

On at the MoB till the 6th February.

A set of simply told stories, wonderfully augmented with portraits of their new lives. Powerful examples of people getting on with their lives, if they’re just given their freedom.

200km City: from Noosa to the Tweed

On at the MoB till the 30th January.

A modern history of the south east of Queensland, starring the car.

The exhibit is made up of a number of different perspectives of the area, how we live, how we travel etc. The most enthralling part for me were the nostalgic photographs and sketches of Brisbane being created, being able to recognize buildings and areas that are completely different today.

Isle of Refuge

On at the MoB till the 6th February.

Artistic responses to the treatment of refugees in Australia. What a digitally created set of escalators or a guy humping the ground have to do with refugees is beyond me.

Give it a skip.
