There is no doubt that Sydney is home to a fizzing artistic climate. Home to innumerable artists, and with exciting galleries smattered throughout the city, there is an abundance of rousing and worthwhile art exhibitions opening on a weekly, if not daily basis. Indeed, it can sometimes be difficult for one to make it to everything they would like. In hope of alleviating such public anxiety, here’s a quick run down of five must see exhibitions openings in Sydney this week.
Goodspace plays host to Scott Marsh’s latest show. Opening this Wednesday, Savoir Fair “explores the growing crossover between graffiti and high art”. You can expect a fun, loud and vibrant body of work on display, and with the gallery located just above The Gladstone Hotel, you’re just one staircase away from the nearest bar.
Wednesday 17 June 6-8pm
This Thursday night the beautiful Minerva Gallery, located in lush Potts Point, plays host to “Conspiracy #3”, an event in which you can expect politics and poetry to be laid bare. “Can poems be conspiracy theories? Or rather, is a poem a conspiracy?” Come on down for some free culture.
Thursday 18 June 6-8pm
Quiet Subversions: Paintings by Arthur Parker @ Interlude Gallery
Glebe’s Interlude Gallery has only been open for a few short months but has truly made its mark in that time. With a talented and diverse group of artists on their roster, Interlude’s positive, fast paced and zealous programming has really helped energize the Glebe as an arts hub once again. Come along to Interlude this Thursday evening and be treated to a retrospective of Sydney artist Arthur Parker, whose luminescent and nuanced paintings can be found adorning the cities streets and gallery walls respectively.
