The Museum of Brisbane has delved deep into its collections for a free new exhibition that presents multiple artist perspectives on the changing nature of the city.

Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane features artwork depicting views from as early as the 1820s and has more than 100 historical and contemporary images of the Brisbane region.

MoB has also commissioned an immersive sound artwork by Brisbane composer, artist and curator, Lawrence English to share the city's many soundscapes. While a dynamic installation by artist Jenna Lee looks at the dual impact of colonisation and development's historic and ongoing impact on environment and language.

MoB Director/Chief Executive, Renai Grace, said the exhibition was a wonderful display of the MoB Collection and provide a multi-faceted view into Brisbane's artistic, historic and cultural development.

"Making Place poses the question 'What makes a place?'. Through these artworks, we discuss what sites are significant for individuals and communities, how will the characteristic landmarks of the city today look in the future, and do memories make a place?" said Ms Grace.

"In the lead up to the 2032 Olympic games, as well as some major development occurring over the next decade in Brisbane, we are looking at what it is that defines a place and how community is built around that place."
