For his latest body of work currently on show at Sydney’s Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Angus has taken a number of deeply symbolic architectural materials and altered their appearance and structure so that their meaning and physical presence are completely changed.
Launched in conjunction with the City of Sydney Chinese New Year Festival, “Snake Snake Snake” brings together a collection of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, photography, sculpture and mixed-media installations by a group of established and emerging artists to celebrate the depth and range of the artistic exchange between Australia and China, Vietnam, and Korea.
To celebrate the opening of its latest store at Sydney’s Westfield Bondi Junction, Tiffany & Co. have collaborated with local artist Dr Lisa Cooper to specially design and create sculptures displayed in the store windows, inspired by Tiffany jewellery designs and heritage.
An exhibition celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Sydney Mardi Gras festival has been launched in Sydney in conjunction with the opening of the pop-up Mardi Gras Museum on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst. Drawing on a diverse array of archival material from public and private collections, the exhibition covers the key themes, events, and wonderful personalities that have helped shape the world-famous festival into what it is today.
Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia, Nick Mitzevich, has been the subject of much discussion since revealing his avant-garde rehang of the Melrose Wing of European Art in January. Mitzevich chose to avoid the traditional chronological system of display, instead seeking to hang the collection in a manner that reflects the contemporary approach of appraising and experiencing works of art across time and place.
