Friday Fabulous Five

View Online Version


Sydney Contemporary has taken its 2021 edition online. The most expansive art fair in the region is supporting the practice of more than 450 artists across the globe – from Australia and New Zealand to Thailand, Ghana and beyond – by making their work accessible to seasoned collectors and budding art lovers alike. Accompanied by a virtual public program, 'Explore Sydney Contemporary' is live until November 21 and brings together presentations from almost 100 commercial art galleries – including Melbourne's Alcaston Gallery, which is showing work by Djerrkŋu Yunupiŋu (pictured).
Petit h is a fabulous and quirky collection from Hermès by visionary creator Godefroy de Virieu. In the reverse design process, precious remnants from luxe bags, silk scarves, ties and even porcelain and crystal are reworked into desirable objets, from upholstered cabinets and toga-style dresses to bag adornments and bookends, including a cuff made from leftover leather with debossed holes wound with surplus silk. View the exhibition and boutique pop-up along with paper sculptures and a cinematic ode to the venture by Melbourne artist Daniel Agdag at the Sydney flagship until November 25.
Sydney's Carriageworks has reopened with a major exhibition from Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist Dennis Golding titled 'The Future is Here'. A joyous cacophony of colour, the installation features a series of capes adorned with iconography relating to the language, landscapes and personal histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from Alexandria Park Community School, with whom the artist collaborated. These symbols of super-heroism aim to empower younger generations, celebrating ties to culture and Country. Until November 28.
Los Angeles-based Australian Richard Christiansen's life took a U-turn when Covid struck, impacting his creative agency and art bookstore businesses. Pitching in to help food producers similarly effected by compiling and delivering vegetable boxes to Los Angelinos, his new mission crystallised: "to offer pleasure from the garden, and help Mother Nature in return". Corralling friends such as Martha Stewart, who wrote the foreword, and chefs Ella Murphy, Jo Kim and others, his first book Flamingo Estate: Friday From the Garden is a delicious melange of sublime recipes, inspiring tales and his newly awakened regenerative philosophy.
