<play/ground> Brisbane City Council's Outdoor Gallery

Curated by MCRT. Studio

Brisbane City Council's Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane's laneways and city streets into imaginative, curious, and engaging spaces. Comprising of light boxes, banners, vitrines, and evening projections, the Outdoor Gallery displays art outside in city streets, instead of inside on gallery walls. Recently, the Outdoor Gallery has grown to include art projections at Howard Smith Wharves and light boxes in Ann Street, Brisbane City.

The latest Outdoor Gallery exhibition, <play/ground>, curated by @MCRT. Studio, will open on Friday 9 September 2022 and run until 16 April 2023.

Kelsey Doyle is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based photographer working predominantly with 35 millimetre film. Kelsey captures the warmth hidden in quiet suburban scenes. Inspired by nature and the people that create the city's beauty, she draws upon the streets of her hometown as her main source of inspiration.

The series of 35 millimetre film photographs depict a candid view of a typical weekend day for a Brisbanite. From morning walks and sunbaking on the beach to afternoons of laundry and catching up with friends, the artworks provide a window into playful weekend routines that reinvigorate us to once again face the concrete jungle on Monday morning.
