(Speaking of pineapples) my own private neon oasis has been harvesting some awards. Early May, The Australian Institute of Architecture (AIA) awarded The Lantern a Brisbane Regional Commendation for Art & Architecture. The award recognises a collaboration between Donovan Hill, Boxcopy and curator. As part of my own private neon oasis, The Lantern was a memorable space to admire the rising moon, and served artists-in-residence who utilised the viewing platform to survey the deep surrounding landscape of Sunnybank.

And just last week, the Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF) named my own private neon oasis the QLD Community Partnership Award winner in recognition of the partnership with Sunnybank Plaza, as well as a best practice recognition. While my own private neon oasis presented multiple complex projects with many stakeholders and collaborators across the shopping precincts at the intersection of Mains Rd and McCullough St, the partnership with Sunnybank Plaza was critical. Both parties worked really well together and it’s a fitting acknowledgement of that collaboration.

my own private neon oasis is accompanied by a 160 page full-colour publication featuring documentation of works by the international and local artists and designers involved, and essays by the curator and contributing writers that address the contexts of the project, with Chinese translations. The publication is available in stores and online. For further information visit museumofbrisbane.com.au/mopno
