Lifestyle: a sunshine state of mind

State Library of Queensland

3rd March - 21st October

Showcasing a range of State Library of Queensland’s rare and restricted collection items, the exhibition Lifestyle: a sunshine state of mindexplores how Queenslanders have pursued meaningful and rewarding lives since the late 1800s. Participatory and thought-provoking, it explores the myriad of ideas and identities that are quintessentially Queensland.

Lifestyledelves into the quirks of the Queensland sensibility through the themes of wellbeing, home, expression, play, community and hope. The exhibition features a mesmerising collection of curios and heritage items including original artworks from Queensland’s early expressionist painters, quirky tourism posters from the 1950s, and vast collections of early home movies.

Lifestyle: a sunshine state of mindtakes the concept of lifestyle and the context of Queensland, and draws them together to present an interactive, participatory exhibition against a unique sunshine state backdrop. In the process, it aims to challenge stereotypes, provoke thought and engagement, and shape ideas and stories about what the future of Queensland lifestyle might hold.
