Sydney's Sculpture by the Sea 2012

Article content

16 October 2012 by Luke McCormick

The 16th annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition opens this week, returning to the Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach coastal walk.

The unique outdoor sculpture event is one of the world's largest free public events and will see the spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk transformed into a two kilometre-long temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world.

Some of the world's leading sculptors will be taking part in the event, which runs from 18 October to 04 November, including Sir Anthony Caro (UK), Professor Sui Jianguo (China), Hiroaki Nakayama (Japan) alongside local artists such as Anne Ferguson, Ken Unsworth AM and Ron Robertson-Swann OAM.

In all sculptors from fifteen countries will take part.

David Handley, Founding Director, said: "The concept for Sculpture by the Sea was the culmination of many years thinking, where a new step in the thought process came up every year or so. Essentially the exhibition came from my wish to create a major free to the public arts event for Sydney."

To celebrate this unique spectacle, we bring you a ‘Picture This' photo special of highlights from last year's event. Check out highlights from the 2012 show.
