SEA SCULP­TURES OUT IN THE OPEN

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - WHAT'S ON -

Now cel­e­brat­ing its 20th an­niver­sary, an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion Sculp­ture by the Sea is back at Bondi. Con­sid­ered one of the world’s largest out­door sculp­ture ex­hi­bi­tions, the free event re­turns to the spec­tac­u­lar Bondi to Ta­ma­rama coastal walk. This stun­ning stretch of Sydney coast­line will be trans­formed with works by Aus­tralian and international artists. This year there are rep­re­sen­ta­tions from Asia, Europe, Mid­dle East, New Zealand, South Amer­ica, UK and USA. The ex­hi­bi­tion at­tracts more than 500,000 vis­i­tors over 18 days and her­alds for many the be­gin­ning of sum­mer in Sydney. This year’s show will fea­ture more than 100 works with the $60,000 Aqua­land Sculp­ture Award win­ner named on the open­ing day. There will also be host artist talks ev­ery weekend be­tween 11am and 3pm. Co­in­cid­ing with this year’s ex­hi­bi­tion is the in­au­gu­ral Sydney Sculp­ture Con­fer­ence. Tak­ing place at Sydney Opera House on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 27, it will see lead­ing international and Aus­tralian speak­ers dis­cuss the im­por­tance, im­pact, chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties of sculp­ture in pub­lic space. To mark the 20th year, Aus­tralian artists who have pre­vi­ously ex­hib­ited at Sculp­ture by the Sea have been in­vited to ex­hibit again.
