Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay
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.
