Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) in Brisbane will open its QPAC 25 exhibition tomorrow on Tuesday 23 February.  The exhibition has a very important featured artist, none other than our very own Diane Cilento.


The exhibition was launched with a press conference introduced by QPAC Chief executive John Kotzas at the QPAC Museum, Tony Gould Gallery where the portraits will be displayed within the exhibition.


This exhibition is part of the celebrations of QPAC 25th Anniversary and will also feature Other celebrities who attended the launch were Bille Brown, Karin Schaupp, Katie Noonan, Lisa Gasteen and Simon Gallaher as well as the portrait photographer, Justine Walpole.


Queenslanders have been applauding world-class performances at QPAC since 1985, and the tradition will continue in 2010 as they celebrate 25 years of extraordinary theatre, music, dance and family entertainment.


Over the years, more than 13 million people have attended ticketed events at QPAC, with thousands more participating in free performances, workshops and outdoor events. With over 20,000 performances having taken place in this time, QPAC has hosted artists from all over the world.  In addition, QPAC has enjoyed great success as a theatrical producer in its own right.


From free events in the public spaces to investing in major musicals to ensure they tour to Brisbane; from community arts workshops to presentations to schools in regional Queensland; from signature programs to showcasing leading national and international companies, we want to ensure all visitors get the very best out of their QPAC experience.
