Summary

The second in the Destination Sydney exhibition series: a unique collaborative project across three dynamic Sydney public galleries presenting the work of nine eminent artists to celebrate the important influence of Sydney as subject and theme. Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and S.H. Ervin Gallery. In 2015, three of Sydney's key public galleries, Manly Art Gallery and Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and S.H. Ervin Gallery produced the first Destination Sydney exhibition, working together to bring a new visual interpretation of Sydney inspired by the city's irresistible siren call to (and influence on) key 20th century Australian artists. The exhibition was well-received, receiving critical acclaim, multiple awards and blockbuster levels of visitation. Seeking both to emulate and build upon this success, our institutions have renewed this partnership with the development of the second exhibition in this series, Destination Sydney: re-imagined. The initial Destination Sydney exhibition drew from the power of Sydney and its harbour to inspire and attract artists. This second exhibition revisits this central concept, celebrating the power of Sydney's landscape, while also following the evolutionary art practices and creative spirit that embody the visual culture of Sydney. Destination Sydney: re-imagined has retained the successful format used in the original exhibition with each gallery displaying a critical mass of well-loved works as well as revealing secret treasures by three key artists. The selection of artists has been based on holdings in the collections of the three galleries, on our exhibition histories and on the sympathies of our curators and institutional staff. Artists at Mosman include Roy de Maistre, Robert Klippel and Michael Johnson. Manly Art Gallery & Museum artists: Ethel Carrick Fox, Ken Done and Adrian Feint. S. H. Ervin Gallery artists: Nicholas Harding, Jeffrey Smart and Wendy Sharpe.
