The 2014 program for Sydney’s largest annual celebration of contemporary art, Art Month Sydney, has been announced .
Beginning on 1 March and running until 23 March, Art Month 2014 embraces the merging of boundaries between art and design, fashion, architecture and commerce.
The Art Month 2014 artistic director, Scrap Wall states: “It’s no secret that there is a universal blending of boundaries between art forms taking place around the globe. Barriers which once existed have been torn down as genres continue to spill into one another. By creating new pathways for creative thinkers to connect art forms, this generation of art makers is changing the way art is made and transforming the art-viewing experience.”
This year’s events and exhibition program will follow the theme ‘intersections and parallels’, and will showcase a broad range of Australian and international contemporary artistic talent.
Event highlights include:
In Situ: Intersections between contemporary art and architecture – renowned artist and architect Richard Goodwin, architect Phillip Arnold and multidisciplinary designer Tomek Archer discuss the crossover between art and architecture.
Collector’s Space: Trend Watch – Sydney art collector Dick Quan, Artspace executive director Alexie Glass-Kantor and Sydney Contemporary director Barry Keldoulis give their industry insights for aspiring contemporary art collectors.
Designer Collections: Australian designers on art and influence – Five high profile and widely respected Sydney designers (Henry Wilson, George Livissianis, Jonathan Logan, Tomek Archer and Liane Rossler) share five works that they had to have – or wish they could have – and describe how the works have inspired their practice.
