South Bank to launch a new arts space

2018 will kick off with a cultural bang at South Bank, with creative arts pop-up Flowstate set to open in late January.

No ordinary pop-up, this arts space has been architecturally designed with three experience areas: a grassy relaxation zone, an immersive digital installation and an open-air performance pavilion.

It’s not just a fleeting installation, either. Flowstate is here for at least 18 months, and could be extended for up to three years.

“Flowstate blurs the distinctions between landscape and architecture, theatre and public space,” say architects Daniel Stukel Beasly and Tobhiyah Stone Feller. “[We] are very interested to see how performers, artists and audiences will respond and activate the site in unique and unexpected ways.”

The space will revive the Arbour View Cafe area, and it is the first major redevelopment in South Bank since River Quay opened in 2011. News that an arts space is stepping into a former food hub will expand the cultural precinct deeper into the Parklands, better connecting the arts, retail and dining experiences within South Bank.

More details will come as Flowstate moves closer to completion in January. It is expected to launch on 29 January with a showcase of free events.
