Located at the prominent site of 388 George Street in Sydney’s CBD, People. Places. Culture is a large-scale outdoor exhibition with featured works by siblings Noni and David Cragg.
Inspired by their First Nations, Scottish and Irish background, the pair painted their family’s past and their community’s future in a series of brilliant rainbow-coloured landscapes and portraits.
Sweeping North to South along the coast of New South Wales, they honour sacred mountains, valleys and waterways, depicted as idyllic places bursting with diamond pythons, wild flowers and soaring skies. They celebrate the lives of some of Australia’s brightest First Nations stars, including dancer and activist Amrita Hepi, renowned artist and surfer Otis Carey, and Bangarra dancer Waanagenga.
This spectacular pre-placemaking project was brought to the people of Sydney by Arts Brookfield and was curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery (an initiative of Wiltshire + Dimas Management). It will be on display for approximately 12 months, bringing a free, outdoor art gallery to the people of Sydney.
