'A fleeting bloom' celebrates the classic arts of Japan. Magnificent folded screens, ceramics, photography and paintings capture moments of distinct and transient beauty through seasonal aspects of nature, the passages of history and the philosophies of transcendence and impermanence that underpin forms of Buddhist art.
Drawn from the Gallery’s rich Collection, the exhibition features key works that acknowledge the recent generous bequest by the late James Fairfax AC.

The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) has delivered significant benefits and opportunities to Queensland's agribusiness sector.
Please join us in attending “How to benefit from JAEPA as an agribusiness” hosted by QJCCI and the CCIQ (Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland) on Thursday, September 26 from 8.30am to 12pm at Victoria Park, Herston.
