Museum of Brisbane's stunning interactive summer exhibition Play Moves breaks with traditional gallery experiences by engaging with the artwork, from December 9 to April 16, 2023.

Following on from the success of Museum of Brisbane’s previous participatory exhibitions (RMXTV and Storytellers: Next Chapter), Play Moves is designed so the audience becomes participants, via six major immersive and interactive projects.

Everyone is invited to step in, touch, move, weave, dance, build and embrace these art installations and to leave their mark on the show with their every action making the art around them grow, change and come alive.

Bringing together six national participatory artists and collectives, the exhibition is a series of spaces that tantalise, delight and engage. Each room will invite visitors to step into the creative world of its maker and become an important part of the work.

From the analogue technology of a mega looms’ warp and weft (Slow Art Collective) to digital motion tracking (Sai Karlen); to a time-warp into a subverted office of the 80s to find a hidden party and jiving pot plants (Counterpilot), to a sound interactive environment (Tara Patterden), a technicolour demolition party (UnitePlayPerform) and soft cocooned sculptures (Michelle Vine), Play Moves invites audiences to explore and test their creative limits.

Featuring works of national and Brisbane-based creatives, Play Moves, draws on the fundamentally familiar aspects of play to redefine the museum experience for MoB audiences presenting ‘play’ as a method for learning about the world and facilitating insightful, divergent thinking, creativity, and social connection.

While a family-friendly exhibition, MoB Director/CEO, Renai Grace, said people of all ages and abilities can surrender themselves to the sublime art of play.

“Play Moves places you at the heart of creative expression and cultural exchange by transforming you from spectator to contributor, inviting you to connect and learn from those around you. It’s a dynamic space that can be visited multiple times to watch the exhibition change and grow over time,” she said.
