A series of outdoor installations exploring bees and humans that will leave you positively buzzing.

Co-existing Pollinators (2020-2021) is an exhibition by Lillian Whitaker that explores the collaborative relationship between humans and bees. The work includes an observational beehive, cocktail, beeswax sculptures, and video and sound installation. This show celebrates the ecological importance of honeybees and our dependence on them as humans. 

Join us for the first week of BAD (7 – 13 May) as we observe our resident European honeybees taking from and contributing to the surrounding environment while they build within their custom designed hive. Following this you’ll find the second iteration of the work (21 – 30 May) that includes a video and sound installation, the bees wax sculptures, and a delicious honey cocktail.

Presented by Metro Arts in association with Museum of Brisbane.
BAD is an initiative of Museum of Brisbane and is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
