After 20 years on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, Sculpture by the Sea is spreading its wings, all the way to Barangaroo. Taking place next month, the Sculpture at Barangaroo exhibition will transform the six-hectare headland reserve, with artworks trailing from the Harbour foreshore promenade all the way up to Stargazer Lawn and Walumil Lawn. The exhibition will feature 12 artworks, from 15 Australian artists, including senior, established and emerging artists.
This is an immersive family friendly event and there is sure to be a something for everyone, whether a leisurely stroll through the sculptures is more your style, or taking advantage of the free talks by exhibiting artists throughout the event sounds like your kind of thing. A selection of sculptures will grow and evolve over the 16-day period and you are invited to participate and contribute between 8am and 6pm daily. It’s also a pretty good reason to visit more than once.
Sculpture at Barangaroo will culminate with a major celebration of the first anniversary of the opening of Barangaroo Reserve on the exhibition’s final day. So it is only fitting that the works pay homage to their location, drawing on the significance of site’s Aboriginal history and culture by highlighting the textures of Barangaroo’s sandstone and gardens as well as their commitment to sustainability.
