FireWorks Gallery showcases some of Australia’s best Indigenous and non-Indigenous contemporary artists through exhibitions, public and private commissions, collaborative projects and publications. The gallery opened in 1993, following the networks of Campfire Group consultancies and collaborative projects dating back to 1987. Originally guided by the tagline ‘Aboriginal Art & Other Burning Issues’, FireWorks Gallery set the scene for contemporary art dialogue in Brisbane and beyond. Since then the gallery has developed a national and international reputation for exhibiting and promoting some of Australia’s best contemporary artists. Directed by Michael Eather, FireWorks Gallery has occupied five spaces during its 25+ year history, and is currently located at its new premises in Bowen Hills.
