Sculpture By The Sea: An Outdoor Exhibition at Bondi Beach

1 comment

Sculpture by the Sea is an annual outdoor sculpture exhibition, the largest of its kind in Australia, that takes place at the beach in Sydney and Perth. Initiated in 1996, the exhibition, currently at its 18th year, is spread over two kilometers from Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from 16 countries. Some of this year's highlights include Geoffrey Drake-Brockman's Counter, an interactive arch which counts viewers as they walk through it, and Andrew Hankin's giant frying pan on Tamarama beach named “We're fryin' out here.”

The 2014 Sculpture by the Sea exhibition celebrates the 1000th artist to have featured in the event.  The exhibition will run from October 23 to November 9.
