Day 2 - January 8, 2017. 🇦🇺 The highlight of the day was the visit to Art Gallery of NSW, the home to huge collections, and beautifully-curated on-going exhibitions. We spent half-day, stayed until it was closed at 5pm, yet still didn’t manage to explore all collections. One captivating work that I'm blown away with is called ‘Manifesto’ by Julian Rosefeldt. It's a series of videos, featuring Cate Blanchett performing encapsulated prominent artists writings. Blanchett recites each manifesto in different character in such a profound way. Even though I know nothing about dadaism, fluxus, surrealism, pop-art, constructivism, or futurism, I still enjoyed [and appreciated] 'Manifesto'. God knows it may becomes a starting point for me to delve into each concept more. #julianrosefeldt #manifesto #artgalleryofnsw #sydney #sydneyinternationalartseries #cateblanchett
Day 1 - January 7, 2017. 🇦🇺 The first day was spent visiting the major tourist attractions: Sydney Opera House ✔ ; Royal Botanic Garden ✔ ; and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair ✔. The story has it that the famous lookout was once Elizabeth Macquarie's favourite spot. Mrs. Macquarie was the wife of NSW’s governor back in the 1810-1821 period. She used to sit in the bench, enjoying the calming harbour view. Boy, was she right because the view is indeed magnificent. #sydney #sydneyoperahouse #mrsmacquarieschair
