Established in 1895, the Queensland Art Gallery is a public Art Museum owned by the Government of Queensland. After moving to multiple temporary locations around Brisbane, QAG finally found its permanent home in 1982, in Brisbane's South Bank. The Gallery is part of a larger cultural precinct called the Queensland Cultural Centre, and welcomes over half a million visitors each year.
Being the first major building to be built on the South Bank of the River, no expenses were spared to create a striking contemporary edifice, which set a precedent for all the following constructions around it. Using state of the art building techniques, materials and design of the time, and incorporating 4,700 square metres of exhibition space as well as remarkable elements such as the Watermall Fountains, it is no wonder it was awarded the Sir Zelman Cowen Award for Public Buildings.
With an impressive collection that covers international, domestic and aboriginal art, as well as modern and contemporary art, the Queensland Art Gallery also hosts temporary exhibitions all year round. In 1993, QAG established the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, which as become an unmissable event for the art scene of the Asia Pacific Region. The Collection of the QAG grew so much that it prompted the construction and creation of the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in an adjacent building in 2006.
