COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening and more spaces are now available. Check what’s open before you visit.
A fully immersive, sensory experience for everyone.
Take a break from reality and immerse yourself in Curiocity Brisbane – a brand-new series of science, art and technology experiences spanning the Brisbane River.
One-of-a-kind installations, pop-ups and interactive spaces crafted by local and international artists, technicians and makers will be on display and free for everyone to explore.
There will be a number of Curiocities here at State Library as part of the Curiocities trail. Drop by and experience what's on.
Shadowgram | Knowledge Walk, level 1
Shadowgram is a public participatory project that combines aesthetic entertainment; the creating of a physical artefact, a sticker cut out in the shape of your shadow, with the intention of participating in social brainstorming.
Dynamo| River Plaza, near The Edge
An interactive Curiocity that demonstrates the dynamics of compressed air to aid movement. Utilise pedal power to capture and compress air, push the buttons and Dynamo comes to life.
Crate Expectations | Roaming around the Cultural Centre
Made from vintage packing crates and bursting with sound and light, this unexpected cabinet of curiosities wanders the day and night, looking for people to engage and delight. You’ll find this robotic creation has hidden wonders to reveal in each of its boxes, an antidote to the screen obsessed public.
While you’re here, make sure you check out our free exhibitions Home: a suburban obsession, Plantation Voices and Palm Island and Our People.
