Trespassing joyfully across disciplines and genres, seek out the architecture and public art that materialises contemporary conditions and attitudes; projects that respond to the culture, history and environment of Sydney and not just imported formulaic codes. SAW is interested in the edgy and the beautiful, the provocative and the daring, the local, the foreign, the trashy and the raw, revelling in the vibrant network of ideas and human relationships that are every cities reason for being. Sydney Architecture Walks want you to get stung by architecture and begin to understand why buildings and cities are the way they are.

Sydney International Art Series: Pop to popism

Art Gallery Rd, Sydney,
Sydney, New South Wales 2000

The movement that changed art forever. Popular, witty, sexy, glamorous - pop art exploded onto the cultural scene in the early 1960s. A new generation of artists rebelled against 'high art' to embrace the world of advertising, film stars, pop music and consumerism. This summer, re-live the pop revolution as 'Pop to popism' takes over the Gallery. See masterpieces such as Roy Lichtenstein's first comic-style painting 'Look Mickey', Andy Warhol's 'Triple Elvis' and David Hockney's 'Portrait of an artist'. For the first time, Australia's contribution to the pop movement is showcased with works by Howard Arkley, Brett Whiteley and Maria Kozic. Featuring works from over 45 lenders worldwide, including the Andy Warhol Museum, Tate and Museum of Modern Art, 'Pop to popism' is exclusive to Sydney this summer. Part of the Sydney International Art Series.
