We visited GoMA in August 2012 to view the Indigenous Exhibition. Unfortunately, we did not have sufficient time to view more exhibitions and we found the Indigenous exhibition disappointing. With so many wonderful artists, we found the displayed choices curious and some of the works of art little more than what you might expect from a preschool drawing! (By comparison we visited an indigenous Art Gallery in the City Mall and the works were OUTSTANDING) Mind you we are not experts nor trained art critics and don't pretend to be.
However ,the building itself is sensational and provides a wonderful backdrop on the banks of Southbank. The GoMA building is part of the whole arts precinct and should be on the list of must doos whilst in Brisbane. Its clean, open and modern lines, attention to detail, numerous volunteers and extensive facilities (wheelchair access, restrooms, galleries, etc) provided an enjoyable visit. The sculptures we viewed on our way to the exhibition were inspiring - loved the baby grand piano sculpture! Wish we had more time to explore-would probably have rated higher. :(
