Art for the Planet
 

Darling Quarter’s environmentally conscious open-air art exhibition returns with Art for the Planet 2: Field (30 Sept. – 26 Oct.). Exploring the themes of overconsumption and environmental destruction, the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of free gardening workshops for kids during the school holidays (1 – 5 and 8 – 12 Oct.).

The eye-popping and evocative exhibition is a joint collaboration between Sydney-based sculpture artists and friends, Jane Gillings and Lucy Barker, which sees everyday items repurposed in such a way as to question our consumption habits.

The installation will be comprised of 64 square-fields, drawing from multiple disciplines – including painting, drawing and mixed media sculpture, made from hundreds of recycled objects and materials; such as rubber thongs, metal zippers, coat hangers, electronic device cables and plastic cutlery.
