What's on this November in Sydney?
There are days where we reach a lull and simply want more to explore and experience. Maybe you're getting tired of staying indoors and want to get outside to wander or soak in some sun. But what is there to do? Sculptures By the Sea and the Sydney Open just ended, but not to worry - we've got some exciting events coming up in Sydney and we've curated just the list. Here are the top 6 best events for you to check out as the weather starts heating up!
Now Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art, The Rocks
$20 for Adults, $17 for Concession, $56 for Family, Free for Under 12 and MCA Members
One of the most anticipated events on this list... Don't miss the first major retrospective in Australia of work by renowned Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima. If illuminated rooms and technologically-driven sculptures are your thing, then you'll love this exhibition. Miyajima is known for his immersive installations that are sure to set your heart aflutter.
7-21 November Avalon Art Carnival
Where: Avalon Parade and Old Barrenjoey Road, Avalon Beach
This unique Carnival (...or should I say game?) is a public art festival around Avalon Beach Village. A series of creative arts installations instill a sense of wonder, fun and excitement created by artists all around the Avalon Village. Just as how public art can be used as a catalyst for social engagement, creating works for the public environment can also present opportunities for artists, both emerging and established, to meet and get together with new non-art audiences. As people wander through the suburb, the familiar becomes activated with play. Keep your eyes peeled - you don't want to miss out!
