As the sun goes down, Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens will light up with the return of Botanica: Contemporary Art Outside.
From May 12-21 Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens will serve as a backdrop to a rich program of art installations and artist performances.
Celebrating its fifth year, Botanica will again enrich the cultural offering of Brisbane with its unique fusion of art and nature.
Residents can look forward to Afterdark Art walks, Night Explorer children's tours and discovery trails, performances each evening, interactive artworks, food trucks and an outdoor bar every evening from 5-10pm.
Botanica Curator, Lucy Quinn, said the event presents an exciting creative challenge for exhibiting artists as they are tasked with breaking out of the walls of a museum or gallery and bring their art directly to the public.
"With a focus on sustainability, artists have responded to the 2023 theme 'Tread Softly' which considers a millennium of human influence," she said.
