Made with Light

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and The Edge, State Library of Queensland

Be transfixed by the beauty of illumination in this interactive display of specially commissioned light installations. 

A collaboration between Brisbane Powerhouse and The Edge has enabled a selection of visual artists to create an exhibition that explores interactivity, the heritage listed architecture of Brisbane Powerhouse and the alluring quality of light.

Responding to the iconic architecture of Brisbane Powerhouse, and led by how far their imaginations will stretch, the light installations have been created with guidance by experts at The Edge, and curatorial direction by Brisbane Powerhouse.

Made with Light will invite you to interact, observe and express yourself – all through the power of light.

Please join us at the opening night for Made With Light on Thu 28 May, 6–8pm in the Visy Foyer.

Installation artists: Sarah Oxenham – Looking Glass, Jonathon Istria – Underground, Alinta Krauth – Un[tram]melled, Kellie Williams – The Touch Project, Sophie O‘Rourke – Paint by Light, Jen Seevinck – Light Currents.
