‘A World View: The Tim Fairfax Gift’ celebrates a decade of artworks acquired through the support of a single generous benefactor. Tim Fairfax’s extraordinary commitment has brought major works by leading international artists into Queensland’s Collection, for visitors to enjoy now and into the future.
Movement is at the centre of this exhibition: the movement of our own bodies dramatically framed by Tomás Saraceno’s majestic webbed spheres, or reflected in the sublime geometry of Timo Nasseri’s refracted universe or be mesmerised by Julian Opie’s passing parade of humanity.
‘A World View’ includes a new captivating light work by leading international artist Anthony McCall. Visitors step into shafts of intersecting light and are encompassed by the sound of breaking waves — an incredible sensory experience”.
