This exhibition colourfully charts the work of Marion Hall Best (1905-1988), one of Australias first and most influential independent interior designers. Displayed are original furniture, fabrics, furnishings and design schemes.
Bests career spanned four decades from the mid-1930s, a period of transition from the department store decorators and art furnishers of the 1920s, to the independent professional designers of today.
Her interiors vibrated with bold colours and patterns and a signature of her commissioned interiors was her vibrant glazed painted finishes on walls and ceilings.
Best introduced the latest of international modernism in design to Australians through her shops in Rowe Street Sydney and Queen Street Woollahra. Her shops become an inspiration to the local design profession.
Jenny Watson is a leading Australian artist whose conceptual painting practice spans more than four decades. Curated by MCA Curator Anna Davis, this survey exhibition features works from the 1970s to the present, including examples of Watsons early realist paintings and drawings, and a number of key series of works on fabric.
Inspired by both punk and feminism, Watsons work uses distilled imagery and abbreviated text to create an intimate interior world. She has travelled widely since the 1970s and employs textiles collected on her travels as the surface for many of her paintings, which also often include collaged materials such as images from magazines, horses hair, ribbons, bows and sequins. Many of Watsons works feature self-portraits and alter egos, a cast of long-haired women, horses, ballerinas, rock guitarists and cats, who enact lifes ongoing psychodramas.
Intertwining autobiography and fiction, her work incorporates a diary-like voice that is delivered with deadpan wit and seems to relay the everyday experiences, dreams and desires of a self-proclaimed suburban girl. The relationship between text and image is central to her work, which frequently includes a small panel of hand painted text that sits alongside a larger image, undercutting or changing its meaning.
Contemplate the power of voice before and beyond words and explore the human voice in this immersive exhibition.
Experience the human voice, how it locates us socially, geographically and psychologically. Learn how the voice is utterly flexible and can be altered with treatment and training.

Blending performance, video, visuals and sound, This is a Voice presents works by artists and vocalists, punctuated by paintings, manuscripts, medical illustrations and ethnographic objects.
This is a Voice is a Wellcome Collection exhibition produced in collaboration with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS).

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the works will be donated to The Black Dog Institute.

Sweden was the first country in the world to replace maternity leave with parental leave in 1974. More than 40 years later, fathers take roughly 25 per cent of the total number of days available to the couple. If fathers paternity leave continues to increase at the same pace it has kept so far during the 21st century, the use of parental leave will not be gender equal until 2040.
Swedish Dads is a photo exhibition based on portraits of fathers who choose to stay home with their babies for at least 6 months. Photographer Johan Bavman examines why these fathers have chosen to stay home with their children, what the experience has given them, and how their relationship with both their partners and their children has changed as a result. The exhibition aims to show the effects of gender equality in parenting on both individuals and society.
Transforming the Observatory Hill Rotunda, celebrated French-Albanian artist Anri Sala is creating a splendorous installation of sculpture and sound for the 33rd Kaldor Public Art Project.
Step beneath the gravity-defying ensemble of custom-built drums to experience their rhythmic, live response to a contemporary interpretation of a Mozart concerto. Set against the sights and sounds of the harbor below, the musical dialogue animates the relationship between sound, place, time and history.
To shape the intricate recorded soundscape for The Last Resort, Sala has reimagined Mozarts Clarinet Concerto in A Major, a masterpiece of the European Enlightenment. Mozarts score is upended, as if it were a message in a bottle carried from Europe across the ocean to Australia, affected by wind and waves.
Vibrant and enchanting, The Last Resort promises a sensory onrush amidst sweeping views of Sydneys treasures. Take a stroll to Observatory Hill and surrender to the poetic beauty.
This artwork is part of Art and About Sydney, an ongoing year-round program of temporary art projects in unusual spaces produced by City of Sydney. The project is presented by Kaldor Public Art Projects, a non-profit organisation that has created groundbreaking art projects in public spaces since 1969. It was co-commissioned with partners Esther Schipper (Berlin) and Marian Goodman Gallery (New York and Paris).
About Anri Sala
Anri Salas works of film, sculpture and installation create poetic analogies that reflect on life and culture from different frames of experience. Past works have traversed European contexts, from his hometown, Tirana, Albania, to Germany and France where he has spent much of his adult life. His artworks often creatively pair image with sound, and explore the choreographic potential of musical instruments and their performers.

The exhibition Gapu-Monuk Saltwater Journey to Sea Country recognising Indigenous Sea Rights. It acknowledges the significant story of the Yolu people of northeast Arnhem Land and their fight for recognition of Indigenous Sea Rights and the Blue Mud Bay legal case.
In essence it is a display of Yirrkala Bark Paintings of Sea Country also known as the Saltwater Collection. 47 Yolu artists petitioned for sea rights by painting their Sea Countries onto bark and revealing sacred patterns or designs known as minytji, that were created by Ancestral Beings.
This stunning exhibition will also include Mokuy (spirit) carvings, Larrakitj (mortuary pole paintings on hollowed trees), lipalipa (dugout canoe) and other traditional and contemporary works.
Yolu artists from fifteen clans and eighteen homeland communities in east Arnhem Land created the sacred paintings in a response initiated by Madarrpa clan leader Djambawa Marawili in 1997, following his indignation at discovering illegal fishing on a sacred site in his clan estate.
Gapu-Monuk Saltwater reveals sacred clan designs demonstrating enduring connection to specific sea country. The Yirrkala Bark Paintings of Sea Country are as historic as they are sacred, as they will never be produced again.
An exciting outdoor exhibition that explores the history and impact of one of the 20th centurys most important innovations: the humble shipping container.
Colourful metal boxes will be scattered like giant Lego pieces in what will be the Australian National Maritime Museums very first outdoor exhibition. Each box will reveal the secrets of how the shipping container has shaped our modern world, changing the way we produce, shop, eat, work and live.
Ubiquitous, standardised and universal, its easy to take the shipping container for granted. But some economists say this unassuming box has done more for global trade than every trade agreement signed over the past 50 years.
The container revolution began with the sailing of the Ideal-X in 1956, and in just over a decade had the makings of a global phenomenon as shipping became cheaper and faster than ever before. After more than 70 years, the sturdy container has stood the test of time, with up to 35 million on the ocean today.

These architectural favorites will be presented alongside buildings in this years focus precinct which extends from Central and Redfern to Eveleigh. It includes heritage sites throughout the Australian Technology Park and the old Eveleigh Rail Yards (1888) in Wilson Street where a successful adaptive reuse of this site by architects tonkin zulaikha greer in 2006 saw the spaces become home to the contemporary multi-arts space Carriageworks.
