Luke Roberts Untitled 1990

The River City

The Australian Library of Art Showcase displays rare items curated from State Library's collections.

The current display of prints and artists’ books from the Australian Library of Art takes its name from an artist’s book by Brisbane artist Helen Malone, The River City: eyewitness document. All the artists in the display have a connection to Brisbane. Many studied at Queensland College of Art. 

A number of the artists – Madonna Staunton, Sebastian di Mauro, Judy Watson, Normana Wight, Luke Roberts and Joe Furlonger – are also featured in Meet the Artists in the slq Gallery on level 2.

Curator’s tours of the Australian Library of Art Showcase, incorporating a mini-white gloves tour, are held monthly.
