art, cultural activity iNine public art and cultural programs will be delivered by 2020 at sites within Barangaroo South, the headland park at Barangaroo Point Reserve and Central Barangaroo in New South Wales.

 

 

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said Sydney was a great city and that great cities were enhanced by public art and cultural activity.

 

 

“Barangaroo is one of the largest urban renewal projects in the country, and incorporating public art is an opportunity to respectfully acknowledge the site’s recent and ancient histories,” Mr Grant said.

 

 

The joint NSW Government and Lendlease Public Art and Cultural Plan for Barangaroo will deliver the programs at no extra cost to taxpayers. The Barangaroo Delivery Authority has set a 1% levy for its development partners on development costs, which will fund art and cultural purposes at Barangaroo.

 

 

Most of this funding will be allocated to seven pieces of permanent public art.

 

 

There will also be a series of cultural activities such as artist-in-residence programs and civic events that, along with world-class architecture and design, will establish Barangaroo as a cultural destination for all Australians as well as international visitors.

 

 

The first public art commission for Barangaroo is a collaboration between Bidjigal/Eora elder and senior artist Esme Timbery and Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones. Located on the southern facade of the Alexander residential building at Barangaroo South, the art work is intended to act as a gateway along the waterfront promenade, Wulugal Walk.
