Event description

Description

Join us for a free curator’s tour of the Lifestyle exhibition, held every 2nd Tuesday 10:30 – 11:00am and 4th Thursday 5:00 – 5:30pm up to 11 September.

The exhibition’s curator, Naomi Takeifanga will provide new insights and behind-the-scenes information as you explore how Queenslanders live and play across the state. Showcasing a range of State Library of Queensland’s rare and restricted collection items, this hands-on exhibition explores the myriad of ideas and identities that are quintessentially Queensland. Meet in the entrance of the SLQ Gallery, level 2 - near the Volunteer desk.

Lifestyle, A sunshine state of mind

Our lifestyles, alongside our ideas of what constitutes a life with meaning, continually shift with time. We buy lifestyle brands, we make lifestyle choices, we read lifestyle magazines. But we also strive to improve our health, connect with family and friends, form and become part of communities, express our ideas and desires, enjoy leisure activities and create hope for the future. While the clichéd Queensland lifestyle is one of sun, sand and sea, the reality is far more nuanced and diverse — just like our landscape and our population.

Lifestyle: a sunshine state of mind takes the concept of lifestyle and the context of Queensland and draws them together to present an interactive, participatory exhibition that explores six universal elements of living — wellbeing, home, expression, play, community and hope — against a unique sunshine state backdrop. In the process, it hopes to challenge stereotypes, provoke thought and engagement and shape ideas and stories about what the future of Queensland lifestyle might hold.

Exhibition continues to Sunday 21 October 2018
