Keeping it Real was a thought-provoking exhibition that used objects from the QPAC Museum Collection to encourage big ideas to flow from conversations about small things. It reflected the idea that two people can view the same object, but interpret it differently based on their background and knowledge.
The exhibition brought together arts industry personalities including Australian playwright and artistic director Wesley Enoch and First Nations multidisciplinary artist and producer Aidan Rowlingson.
Here, the object Wesley discusses is a program for a play called Fountains Beyond. The program was from a Brisbane Repertory Theatre Society (forerunner of La Boite Theatre) production at Albert Hall, Brisbane in 1947. Wesley directed a new production of Fountains Beyond in 2000.
