2021 – Week 42

Went for a midweek jaunt to Brisbane to check out the Masters From The Met exhibition. It was a blast seeing in person, works I’ve seen in textbooks for years. An hour queue to get in, so I decided to buy a membership, figuring I should at least do that as a part of being an artist – and frankly the QAGOMA is such a fantastic institution, I’m glad to contribute.

Their policy or welcoming people to bring cameras is in stark contrast to the Victorian NGV’s po-faced killjoy attitude of “no professional cameras”. Then again, calling themselves a “national” gallery of a state is just the sort of thing you’d expect.
