Last week I went to the new Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art. The architecture plays a major role in the experience of GOMA. I think it is an excellent example of the use of industrial processes and materials in an sensitive site-friendly way.
The artwork I loved the most were these ceramic vessels from Iran ( I can't remember the date on these but I think it was around 800 AD). They are ancient but the shapes are so refined and modern, they remind me of Gwynn Hansen-Piggott's family groupings.
