The Space

The Space - one of Expo '88's smallest - and lesser known performance venues - was located in the northern Brisbane River-side edge of the Expo site - near the helicopter pad and the side of the Canada Pavilion and Suncorp Sensus Play Area, where, in front of a small circular grass turf seating area, families could rest, have a picnic lunch, and enjoy busker-type entertainment by individual performers, as well as street theatre performers and smaller scale types of entertainment.

Also nearby here was the popular New Zealand art work of a group of African animals grazing - a very effectively done colourfully rendered painted profile of several elephants and zebras, on sheets of cut-out corrugated iron - which added some unfamiliar - and welcome - whimsy to this somewhat hidden part of the site.
