Gapu-Monuk Saltwater
more_vert
close

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.

Container
more_vert
close

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.

A Museum Of Magic
more_vert
close

The history of magic as an art form has been shrouded in mystery in order to protect its secrets, often being handed down verbally from magician to magician. But in this secret museum of Sydney, this history of wonder and knowledge comes to life.

The Australian Museum of Magical Arts is set within the secret walls and corridors of The Magicians Cabaret Theatre. Through personal objects, photos and films, personal mementos, secret plans, books and artefacts, you can learn about the mind of a magician and the fascinating role magic has played in cultures.

This museum may be small, but it is packed with information and inspiration. Not just about revealing secrets. By discovering the role magic has played in movies, in war, even in history, you will also experience not just wonder but the beauty of imagination.

You will feel like you are searching, or travelling for the purpose of discovery.

Bookings essential.

City Walls #1: To be free is to have no fear
more_vert
close

City Walls is a series of surprise street art projects brought to you by Art and About Sydney and Elliott Routledge of Funstudio.

The first artwork in the brand new City Walls project, To be free is to have no fear, is a colourful work by artist Nadia Hernandez behind Customs House on Loftus Lane. Nadia works by creating the work as a paper cut artwork in a smaller scale, then translates it to the wall.

A multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Sydney, Nadia Hernandez was born in Merida, Venezuela. Her practice continues to orbit and explore Venezuelan folklore, using collage, craft, design and text to reflect on the intersecting ideologies of social and political change.

Hernandez has had both solo and group exhibitions across the country and has created site-specific works in Sydney for cultural hubs such as The Thousands and Golden Age Cinema. Her work is held in private collections throughout Australia, New York, London, Luxembourg, Barcelona, and Japan.

Watch out for more City Walls in the coming months springing up in an ever-changing Sydney.

Visit Nadias, Elliotts, or the Funstudio website and Nadia or Elliotts Instagram.

Something Else is Alive
more_vert
close

Urbanised and sprawling, Sydney is deeply urbane yet paradoxically wild. A secret city of animals, both seen and unseen, exists amongst us. We are coupled and tethered to the animal world in a symbiotic relationship that stretches from the present into the past.

Birds sweep through our skies and pick at our waste, cats rule social media networks, dogs are preened and prepped, and rats scurry endlessly within close proximity. Animals are depicted through deeply symbolic decoration, from public art to architectural motifs. Yet this relationship is often overlooked.

Something Else is Alive: Sydney and the Animal Instinct approaches the idea of the animal in the city in various ways from the humorous to the downright creepy, from the symbolically sacred to the secular.

The exhibition will feature objects drawn from the City of Sydney collection and archives alongside artworks by four Sydney-based artists: Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Blak Douglas, Mylyn Nguyen and Garry Trinh. The show will also include the dogs eye view of Bailey Haggarty - rescue dog and Assistant Director of Seagulls at the Australian National Maritime Museum, dramatic footage of a Peregrine Falcon preying on a pigeon on a ledge of the Westpac building, Il Porcellino, Sydneys wild boar with a lucky snout, fascinating 19th century letters of complaint received by the Lord Mayor and a 24-hour bee-cam.

Something Else is Alive will investigate everything from the difference between Indian myna and noisy miner birds, to what the horses of the NSW Mounted Police get up to when theyre not fighting crime. It will engage people from all walks of life.
