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.
