Brisbane Festival and Wesley Mission present

Art From the Margins

15 - 18 Sep
Brisbane City Hall - Sandgate Room & Sherwood Room
Wesley Mission (AUS)
Australian Premiere

This is a must-see exhibition of inspiring artworks by artists living with disadvantage or experiencing social isolation – including artists living with mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities, and homelessness.

Art from the Margins showcases worlds that are sometimes impossible to talk about – spaces beyond the canvas.

Take a visual journey into realities where things are different – where colours do unusual things and where spaces aren’t what we expect them to be.

The exhibition this year is a response to the theme 'Inside - Outside'.
