Sam Cranstoun: Impossible Conversations Exhibition at MoB
Inspired by Vanity Fair’s bitingly satirical 1930s series ‘Impossible Interviews’, nine Brisbane residents shared the conversations they would like to have with their chosen figure from Italian history.
Sam has interpreted these conversations through a series of watercolour paintings.
Because the historical figures are unable to take part in the conversations, Sam’s paintings hover in the space between question and answer. He offers glimpses of the conversations through ...

Her works integrate video, photography, performance, sound, and installation to immerse the viewer in an almost physical experience that elicits a sense of what it is to move like a ballet dancer –weightless motion camouflaging the often painful and ...
Mao’s Last Dancer the exhibition: A portrait of Li Cunxin at the Museum of Brisbane
After becoming one of China’s first cultural exchange students, Li made world-wide headlines in 1981 when he fell in love with an American dancer and decided he wanted to stay to the United States. With his Chinese citizenship revoked and unable to return to his home country, he danced with the Houston Ballet for 16 years. He enjoyed international success, which continued when he joined the Australian Ballet as a principal artist in 1995.
Today Li lives in Brisbane with his wife and ...
Robyn Stacey: Cloud Land at MoB
Stacey uses one of the oldest photographic techniques invented more than 1,000 years ago, the camera obscura. She gives this technology a bold and surprising reinvention as her work turns entire rooms into the surface of a photograph, casting the view from the outside in.
Her dreamlike works capture a moment in time, exploring both the history of the location and the personal stories of the subjects featured within these unique landscapes— offering an intimate and provocative look at ...
Run All Night Movie Review
The 2008 film Taken recast Neeson as one of the big screen’s true bad asses and reenergized his career. This change was helped by the actor buffing up and having the innate physicality to play those roles with enough authenticity to be featured close up in fight and action scenes. No soft filter or distant set up shots were needed to hide the fact that almost all of the fight scene featured stunt doubles (i.e. Roger Moore in all the Bond films).
This time out, instead of being a ...
