HOTA Collects: Showcases

On the Lower Ground and Level 5 of the new HOTA Gallery, you’ll find two specially curated showcases of works from the City Collection.

Lower Ground

From the golden nostalgia of Summer holidays, long weekends away, and international dreams of a beach-side paradise – the Gold Coast has long since held a mythical allure on the world stage, and a dedicated passion for those who made the region their home. Our Lower Ground Showcase has been curated from the HOTA Souvenir Collection with pieces from the 1940s to 1990s that speak to the history of tourism on the Gold Coast.

Level 5

On Level 5, explore the work of Australian sculptor Linde Ivimey. Inspired by cabinets of curiosities, this display showcases Ivimey’s  blend of domestic skills – weaving, cooking, and sewing – and use of diverse materials like bones and teeth to create sculptures rich in narrative and intrigue. It will include a combination of her works in HOTA’s Collection, and items on loan from the artist.

HOTA Collects

Showcasing over 100 works from HOTA’s Collection across three galleries HOTA Collects reflects key developments in Australian art over the past 50 years including abstraction, feminist art, Indigenous art, ceramics, and twenty-first-century photography.
