There’s no denying that Sydney is going to be a busy month for accommodation.
The Opera House is expected to host the opening of a new exhibition and, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Sydney Olympic and Paralympic Games are scheduled to be held there.
But the new exhibition will not be a preview of what’s to come at the venue, as it’s a limited preview.
Instead, it will give a sneak peek of the new show to the public.
“The new exhibition is a preview show,” Sydney Opera Group CEO Robert Sussman said.
“There will be a small exhibition but a very, very large one.”
So what’s new?
The show will feature a mix of contemporary artworks and works by famous and not-so-famous artists.
There will be some great artwork on display, but it won’t be the same as the exhibitions that are in the show.
Sussman explained the idea behind the exhibition was to try and showcase the range of work being produced in Australia at the moment.
“We’re trying to create something that’s unique in the world, that’s exciting to see and is something that really gets people thinking,” he said.
“In a very short period of time, this is going be one of the most anticipated exhibitions in the history of Sydney.”
He said the work was being produced by an artist called J.M. Widdicombe, a member of the Royal Australian Academy of Art.
Widdicoms latest show, called The Dreamers, was commissioned in 2017 and the exhibition opened in March 2018.
He’s worked on other exhibitions in Sydney, but has previously worked in Melbourne.
“I’ve been involved with the Royal Academy of Arts in Melbourne,” Widdick said.
He said that, with the exhibition, the Royal Art Gallery wanted to create a show that “seeks to capture the beauty of Australian culture and its history”.
“The idea was to create works that are something that will inspire, that will be reflective of the diversity of Australian art, and will really capture that Australian heritage,” he explained.
Widicoms new exhibition, which will be open to the general public, will run at the new Opera House until April 12.
The new show is expected at the Opera House from 11am on February 12, 2019.
