Monumental Queensland Signposts On A Cultural Landscape

Picture of Monumental Queensland Signposts On A Cultural Landscape
Authors Lisanne Gibson and Joanna Besley have selected over 200 of Queensland’s diverse public cultural objects and placed them, for the first time, along the same continuum. Some old, some new. Some familiar, some forgotten. Some lost forever. These signposts on a cultural landscape provide a unique guide to Queensland’s stories and histories. Monumental Queensland encourages us—whoever and wherever we are—to look more closely at the things around us and how they articulate our identity. It also asks us to consider why these objects continue to matter, and shows what can happen if they’re not acknowledged.
