Ginger Ren Jones-Evans

In the eyes of every parent, their child is an artist. Just look at any fridge around the country, they’re all adorned with paintings and drawing from little ones. For six-year-old Ginger Ren Jones-Evans though her artistic ability has far exceeded the ‘fridge gallery’ as she is now set to open her first ever solo […]

Hype you can believe in

BY ANITA SENARATNA Unusual and unique items abound at Hypmotive, an artisan community hub based in vibrant Marrickville. For pompom jewellery to tote bags with astronauts on them or prints of labradors, look no further than Hypmotive.

BEST GALLERY – BRETT WHITELEY STUDIO

Hidden in the maze of Surry Hills streets, studio and home – turned museum and art gallery of celebrated artist Brett Whiteley is something every Sydneysider should at least pretend know about.

Suellen Symons – Displacement

Humans are susceptible to fantasies and dreams. We are drawn to the things that cannot be. We might judge them; we might dislike them or even love them.

Standing Rock

Photo journalist Angus Mordant has brought his first solo exhibition to Sydney, documenting the Standing Rock Sioux and their allies as they fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

IN POSSIBLE WORLDS

In Possible Worlds, the new exhibition at the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, brings together three diverse artists looking at common themes of identity and ordinary life.

SUPERDELUXE

Call me biased, but I am of the opinion that anything that originates in Tokyo is likely superior to things that do not. This is certainly the case with Superdeluxe, the performance and art space founded in the ultimate city of lights in 2002. For the first time, and to our great joy, Superdeluxe has […]

EXHIBITION: INSIDE OUT

Once again, science and art have collided, proving that a lack of scale does not equate to a lack of complexity. The pieces on show at Object Gallery currently represent 46 artists' use of rapid prototyping technology, created using 3D computer modeling techniques. The creations are a view into another world, where the closer you […]

GAFFA GALLERY

It seems the time has come for Sydney’s long eschewed CBD to open itself to resident hipsters. Oft dismissed as little more than soulless gridlock, there has been admittedly little to draw arty types to the spanking clean metropolis. Sydney is, after all, the city of villages. Thankfully, we are seeing a revival. At the […]
