Art Almanac - - Art In Australia -

Mu­seum of Syd­ney Un­til 25 Novem­ber, 2018 Syd­ney

This ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures Aus­tralian artists who, dur­ing the 1970s and 80s nur­tured an ex­tra­or­di­nary bo­hemian arts com­mu­nity at Laven­der Bay on Syd­ney’s north side. Paint­ings, draw­ings, prints, sculp­ture and ex­per­i­men­tal film works by Peter Kingston, Tom Car­ment, Philip Cox, Joel Elen­berg, Robert Jacks, Rollin Sch­licht, Garry Shead and Tim Stor­rier are on dis­play with rarely seen art­works by Brett White­ley. ‘Bo­hemian Har­bour’ re­flects on the creative en­ergy and so­cial con­nec­tions that flour­ished dur­ing those years.
