The Salon Electric exhibition

25 August, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11 February, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Be seduced by the alluring glow of neon.

The Salon Electric is a celebration of neon signs in Queensland and the Asia Pacific – the process of making neon, its relationship to night life subculture and its latter-day resurgence in contemporary art and design.

Visit the Design Lounge on level 2 or the Infozone level 1  to see iconic pieces curated by neon maker Michael Blazek alongside photographs from the SLQ collection.

The Salon Electric program includes the Queensland premiere screening of NEON, a neon demonstration and workshop, a neon walking tour of Brisbane and you can join in via Historypin to help track the story of neon in Queensland. Stay tuned for all the details.

Opens Fri 25 August until Sunday 11 February 2018.

Open daily.
