For art lovers and those curious about contemporary art, Sydney Contemporary returns to Barangaroo for a second year with three leading Australian artists creating large-scale, site- specific works that will sit throughout Barangaroo’s commercial, retail and dining precinct.

Callum Morton

Callum Morton’s practice is inspired by architecture and human interaction with designed spaces and facades. For this project, Callum will be creating a Shelter that will protrude from the pavement creating shelter for the passers-by.

Mel O’Callaghan

Mel O’Callaghan presents a new large scale floor installation and performance at Barangaroo. Bold, graphic and monumental lines will intersect across the forum pavement of the Barangaroo site, in a coordinated composition – at once a language and musical score guiding the body through an intensive breathwork performance. The ritualistic movement directed by the lines and arcs of the floor transform both the presence of performers and the public within the Barangaroo space.

Cameron Robbins

Using his wind-powered drawing instruments, Cameron Robbins will transcribe the invisible energies of nature, the wind, the tides and light to create drawings, photographs and moving image works along the foreshore of Barangaroo.
