Biennale of Sydney: adventure #2
We visited the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) biennale offering today. We had a great time and enjoyed the works more than those we saw at the Museum of Contemporary Art a couple of weeks back. There is more installation, video and sculptural pieces at the AGNSW. Works we liked were large scale, recontextualised the everyday, and imbued a materiality and execution of intrigue. O really got into exploring the works, asking lots of questions.
Pictured is one of O's fave works. Small Business Karoke by Jun Shi, 2009. Reading the artwork info, we learnt that it's from the White Rabbit Gallery Collection too.
We drove into the City and parked at our fave little car park, Interpark Domain Car Park for a day flat rate of $10. Took a packed lunch for the boys and ate at the extra bench tables the AGNSW have placed alongside their cafe, recently. All good.
