Syd Air­port indige­nous art

Travel Daily - - News -

AN ART in­stal­la­tion of 28 flags rep­re­sent­ing a di­ver­sity of Abo­rig­i­nal cul­tures was un­veiled at Syd­ney Air­port’s Ter­mi­nal One mar­ket­place last week.

Kami­laroi artist Archie Moore cre­ated the “United Ney­tions” art­work as a re­sult of a new land­mark part­ner­ship be­tween the Syd­ney Air­port and the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia (MCA).

“We’re proud to sup­port Archie Moore’s vi­sion and are ex­cited about the in­cred­i­ble cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence United Ney­tions will foster,” said Syd­ney Air­port chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Ge­off Cul­bert.

“We’re very much fo­cused on con­tin­u­ally find­ing new ways to en­sure both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional trav­ellers en­joy a dy­namic and unique ex­pe­ri­ence when­ever they visit Syd­ney Air­port,” he added.

MCA di­rec­tor El­iz­a­beth Ann Mac­gre­gor was also present at the un­veil­ing, and said she be­lieved “arts and cul­ture are an im­por­tant part of cre­at­ing an iden­tity for the city”.
