Those looking to shake up their well-trod weekend workout routes would do well to bear Barangaroo in mind for whatever equal parts virtuous and vigorous al fresco itineraries they have planned for tomorrow. After all, variety is the spice of a life well-documented in one’s Instagram Story.
Proving that not even stalwart arts events are immune to the monolithic charms of the divisive precinct, Sculpture at Barangaroo, the inland equivalent of the world’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition Sculpture by the Sea, today returns to the Harbour foreshore with an outdoor exhibition of 14 artworks by nine emerging and mid-career Australian artists.
Five new works and nine existing sculptures have been installed in situ; participating artists include sculptor Michael Le Grand [pictured top], for whom the occasion has been likened to something of a miniature retrospective of six works and who was a co-winner of the inaugural Sculpture by the Sea 20 years ago; other featured sculptors include Richard Tipping, Nicole Monks, Cave Urban, Andrew Rogers, Adam King from the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative, Tereasa Trevor, Christopher Langton and Elyssa Sykes-Smith.
Barangaroo Reserve is open to visitors 24/7, naturally, but visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to view the works between 8:00am – 6:00pm daily. No filter necessary.
