Artists to ‘transform’ Broadway Shopping Centre
Mirvac and Perron Group have given five Sydney-based artists ‘free creative reign’ to transform Broadway Sydney into an open art gallery as part of the public art initiative associated with the centre’s redevelopment.
The artwork, which will be mix of modern Australian art, will be permanently showcased as part of the redevelopment of Broadway’s Level 2 – focusing on locally based art, sustainable urban design and ongoing community collaboration through a series of public engagement activities over the coming months.
Emilya Colliver, Art Pharmacy consulting director and curator of the ‘Public Art’ program, handpicked the artists who will each create artwork to adorn four support columns located on the new Level 2.
Joel Moore, a freelance illustrator whose murals and T-shirt designs have gained him international recognition, will activate the external entry to the new Level 2 precinct located on Francis Street.
The four artists to transform Level 2 are illustrator and silkscreen printer Kate Banazi, furniture designer Vincent Buret, textiles artist Victoria Garcia and industrial designer Adam Goodrum.
“This is a great opportunity to connect with the local community and create opportunities for emerging artists while enhancing our public life and shopping experiences,” said Colliver.
