Art, design and polo kicked off the new year.
LOVERS OF ART enjoyed an intimate dinner at Carriageworks to celebrate the launch of German artist Katharina Grosse’s enormous, kaleidoscopic abstract fabric installation titled ‘The Horse Trotted Another Couple of Metres, Then It Stopped’, sponsored by Anna Schwartz and Bresicwhitney. The site-specific installation was commissioned as a key part of the Sydney Festival. Architect Nick Tobias’s private residence was a fitting venue for a soiree to showcase Bang & Olufsen’s sleek designs and superior sound. Party guests enjoyed the exclusive opportunity to see Nick’s architectural flair up close accompanied by suitably stylish technology. Casual style reigned supreme at the fabulously social Portsea Polo where Stella Artois sponsored an elegantly busy marquee.
