‘Home: a suburban obsession’ explores the allure of home and the stories found within, and is inspired by one of the largest digitised photographic collections of Queensland houses. The exhibition explores the social and emotional foundations of our houses through ephemera and artistic responses, capturing the places we call home. During the 1960s and 70s, locals Frank and Eunice roamed the suburbs, photographing houses in South East Queensland.

Fifty years on, the legacy of their efforts are showcased in an extensive collection of images that indiscriminately capture Queensland housing stock, from the architectural to the ramshackle. Delve into the stories behind the photographs that have been embraced by a community infatuated with Frank and Eunice Corley’s work. The show features immersive virtual reality streetscape, art installations, incredible untold stories, and rarely-seen photographs that allow audiences to see a glimpse into their extraordinary obsession
