Water is on display this summer at QAGOMA and explores the vital element which sustains all life on Earth.

Walk across a vast, rocky riverbed created by Olafur Eliasson. See animals from around the world gather togetehr to drink from Cai Guo-Qiant’s brilliant blue waterhole. Gaze at Peter Fischli and Davie Weiss’s snowman froen in Brisbane’s summer heat. Traverse a cloud of suspended gymnastic rings in a participatory artwork by William Forsythe. View the tidal currents rise and fall around Angela Tiatia. Reflect on the cultural traditions of bodies of water with Judy Watson, and on the long history of our reliance on water through Megan Cope’s re-created midden . . . and much more.

On display at GOMA, Queensland until 26 April.
