Vivid Sydney at Darling Quarter
Vivid Sydney returns to Darling Quarter in 2017 with activities and events to engage audiences of all ages. REVOLUTIONS is an exhibition showcasing 16 large-scale, music-themed artworks created by American artist Shepard Fairey. It will run from Friday, 26 May at OPEN, Darling Quarter’s outdoor exhibition space (24 hours, 7 days a week, admission free). This is an official exhibition of Vivid Sydney 2017, presented by Darling Quarter, aMBUSH Gallery, and T-world. LIGHT PLAYGROUND at the Village Green North is perfect for children and families, featuring three different play spaces in modified shipping containers to encourage experimentation with light. There’s Giant Light Bright (an over-sized backlit pegboard), Light Bubble Forest (clear, illuminated 1.5m high columns filled with flowing liquid bubbles), and Glow in the Dark Illumination (showcasing black light luminescence). LIGHT PLAYGROUND will flicker to life from Thursdays to Sundays for the duration of Vivid Sydney (6pm until 9pm nightly, free of charge). Visitors can also enjoy LUMINOUS AT DARLING QUARTER live from 6pm each night – a permanent public art installation with interactive consoles on the two Village Greens where people can ‘finger-paint’, play games on the spot and take full control over this enormous interactive digital light display (the largest of its kind in the world) to create their own unique light shows. To keep the upbeat Vivid vibe going, live DJs will entertain the crowd at the precinct from Thursdays to Sundays, 6-10pm nightly. Join our event on Facebook here.
FREE KIDS’ URBAN ART WORKSHOPS
At Darling Quarter’s Village Green these school holidays, there’ll be opportunities aplenty for hands-on creativity – powerfully combined with empathy – at the Kids’ Urban Art Workshops, themed ‘Paste for Peace’. The free one-hour workshops explore identity and belonging, while teaching the art of paste-ups to kids aged 5-15 years, and offering them a platform to express their voice. The workshops will complement the Harmony Art Collective exhibition, with the kids’ collaborative artwork donated to charity. Three workshops will be held each day on 19th, 20th and 21st April, with starting times at 11am, 12pm and 1pm. Places are limited and registration is essential: email@example.com Presented by Darling Quarter, and curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery.
