Sydney Travel: Art Galleries

Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney
Hi, my name is Sophie and I'm an art gallery junkie. For me, no trip is complete without a cultural excursion to an art gallery. It's one way for me to stack cities up against each other. "You've got James Turrell? Well WE'VE got David Lynch" etc. My trip to Sydney coincided with the opening of the Light Show exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art, which I was really looking forward to. Photos weren't allowed inside the actual exhibit (although plenty of people were trying) so the ones here are from the Luminous exhibit and other collections. The next day I escaped the torrential rain and retreated to the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Despite visiting the art galleries on separate occasions, they're so close by that you could easily nerd out and make a day of it. While there was plenty to see at the Art Gallery of NSW, I did go during a weird in-between phase so a few of the collections were in the process of either being dismantled or put together. Turns out I missed out on some really interesting exhibits like Loud! and Matisse And The Moderns by only a few days. While there are plenty of other galleries in Sydney I would have loved to have visited, like the White Rabbit Gallery, the MCA and Art Gallery of NSW are must-dos for those short on time.

  1. I've been seeing Sydney's galleries all over Instagram as of late and they look so amazing! Love your shots, especially the first of the chandelier and deliciously colored wall. <3

  2. Same, I do the same, you've always go to find one to go to no matter where you are in the world. Modern ones tend to be more fun but the classic stuff is impressive in a different way.

    1. I prefer modern ones too - they usually have more interactive stuff which is nice.

  3. Going to art galleries is always a really cool experience. I love being able to see all of the different creative pieces of work. It is really interesting how every artist has a different style. I love being able to try to figure out the symbolism behind each piece of art.
