The Sydney International Art Series brings to Australia, especially to Sydney outstanding exhibitions of the world, every summer. What’s in store for this summer are the Japan Supernatural and Cornelia Parker exhibitions.
Japan Supernatural (2nd Nov 2019 - 8th March 2020) at Art Gallery of NSW
You can experience a great fascinating world in this exhibition of the Sydney International Art Series: Japan Supernatural. It features around 180 kinds of wildly imaginative works by the Japanese artists of the past and the present. When you will visit the exhibition you will step in the shadows & confront a wide array of magical creatures & phenomenal beings, where goblins, ghosts & mischievous shapeshifters basically inhabit a spirit realm. You can see the folklore of Japan brought to life in wonderful paintings, miniature carvings, big-scale installations & humorous illustrations, & explore the ukiyo-e woodblock prints, which define the tradition of supernatural in Japan.
Centred on the monumental installation of sculpture and painting by Takashi Murakami, Japan Supernatural features some great Japanese artists of the past such as Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Katsushika Hokusai & Tsukioka Yoshitoshi along with the modern artists including Miwa Yanagi, Fuyuko Matsui and Chiho Aoshima, who are specialised in the creative lineage of visualising any unseen.
Don’t miss this unique curated exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW – it is an exhibition like no other. It is being presented in collaboration with the Sydney International Art Series.
Cornelia Parker (8th Nov 2019 to 16th Feb 2020) at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia
Cornelia Parker is the most significant women artist in the contemporary world. She is known for transforming everyday objects into haunting, unexpected scenarios. In the hands of the artist domestic & familiar items are shot, exploded, turned back to front & rearranged in surprising manners. Working with the sculpture & installation, and drawing, film and photography, Parker positions her objects at the moment of their transformation, suspended in time & fully still. This summer, if you want to immerse yourself in the works, which suspend time & capture amazing moments of transformation, visit this first exclusive survey exhibition of Cornelia Parker at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Australia. The exhibition features over forty artworks from across the artist’s career, including embroideries, big-scale installations, video works, works on paper, and a choice of small-scale objects and sculptures.
