Woolstores Project

The Woolstores Project is a curatorial collaboration between Caroline Austin and Dr Victoria Lawson that began in 2017. The Project team curates exhibitions within the historic Ansonia Woolstore building in Brisbane that reflects on the history and the institution of the Woolstores as a type of transitional urban space, creative environment, and site of consumption.  

The history of the Teneriffe Woolstore buildings highlights the colonial history of Brisbane, one that was built on the back of the sheep industry, as well as those of mining, logging and tourism. The gentrification of the Woolstores has occurred over close to half a century and highlights the mobilities of this urban space and domestic cultural tourism along the Brisbane River, close to the Powerhouse Museum, New Farm and Fortitude Valley.
