Sculpture at Barangaroo

5-20 Aug 2017

Presented in partnership with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and the iconic Sculpture by the Sea, Sculpture at Barangaroo returns to Barangaroo Reserve this August.

Sculpture at Barangaroo returns to Barangaroo Reserve from 5-20 August, presented in partnership with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and Sculpture by the Sea.

The visually stunning, free-to-the-public outdoor exhibition will surprise and delight Sydneysiders and visitors as they explore the greenspace at the spectacular Harbour foreshore park.

Visitors can enjoy 14 artworks by nine established and emerging Australian artists, including five new works created specifically for the exhibition and nine existing sculptures that have been hand selected by curator Geoffrey Edwards to complement the striking landscape and backdrop.

Edwards’ vision for the exhibition is to showcase three streams of sculpture: classic, modernist, autonomous works; site-specific sculpture as installation in an area that demands it; and compelling Indigenous artworks, many from artists that are local to the Sydney region, that draw on the geographical significance of Barangaroo.

Exhibiting artists include esteemed Australian sculptor Michael Le Grand, who will be celebrated with a mini-retrospective of six works, 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.

The park is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We do however encourage visitors to view the works between 8:00am-6:00pm daily.
