Art Almanac - - Art In Aus­tralia - Syd­neyfes­ti­

Syd­ney Fes­ti­val re­turns to trans­form the city with a di­verse pro­gram of mu­sic, cabaret, cir­cus, dance, the­atre and vis­ual art, as well as sched­uled talks and work­shops, from 9 to 27 Jan­uary 2019.

Ex­pe­ri­ence site-spe­cific sound­scapes res­onat­ing from an enor­mous de­com­mis­sioned mil­i­tary fuel tank hid­den in Mos­man, or get phys­i­cal as you col­lec­tively cy­cle 384,400km in cel­e­bra­tion of the first moon land­ing at World Square. Be con­fronted by so­cio-po­lit­i­cal is­sues in Ja­cob Nash’s large-scale out­door sculp­ture deal­ing with the im­pact of colo­nial­ism; Ryan Pres­ley’s rein­ven­tion of na­tional cur­rency as a cel­e­bra­tion of Indige­nous his­tory, or Phuong Ngo’s ten-day du­ra­tional per­for­mance in­spired by im­mi­gra­tion in­volv­ing the fold­ing of thou­sands of origami boats, and recorded in­ter­views with Viet­namese refugees.
