28 August 2012 | The Brisbane Supreme & District Court Building is now the permanent home of three public art installations, including a 90-metre mural by celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Two Australian artists are also involved in the project.

Sally Gabori's painting Dibirdibi Country now hangs behind the judge’s bench in the Banco court and a hand-painted piece by Gemma Smith is on the court's ceiling.

Associate Professor Jay Younger, from the Queensland College of Art, curated the installation and has led the project since its commission in 2008. She says the commissions “are extraordinary endeavours that are rarely, if ever, able to be realised in an artist’s lifetime”.

The official unveiling event takes place on 29 August 2012 at the Queen Elizabeth Court of Law in Brisbane.
