Syd Airport indigenous art
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”.
