Join us for the opening night of the Brisbane Street Arts Festival 2017 to kick off an exciting month of contemporary art across Brisbane.
The Brisbane Powerhouse in partnership with BSAF invite you to the opening of ‘Where it Began’ a retrospective photographic exhibition that offers a glimpse into the history of Brisbane graffiti and street culture that begun in the early 80’s. As a tribute to the old and introduction to the new artists will also paint live on stage in the newly developed virtual reality graffiti platform Kingspray. If that isn’t enough to immerse your senses the launch of Art Atlas a new online public art archive will allow to you explore many public art works across Australia in the palm of your hand.
The invitation is extended to citizens of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities, abilities and artistic interests. Please join us for a celebration of arts and culture.
