primavera art walk *sydney*
Thank you for your feedback on my last post of street art in Sydney. It was fun to set myself this very specific mission from both artistic and visual navigation aspects. These photos are from the 2011 Primavera art exhibition. With the Museum of Contemporary Art closed for renovations, they moved this annual event to the streets for the first time. It shows artwork installations and pop up performances by young Australian artists in locations around The Rocks under the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge.
From a visual disability access point of view, this exhibition is more challenging partly due to the historic nature of the precinct. Also, it was harder to find the artworks as they were in random locations at different heights and of different sizes. Having had a big outing the day before, I grew tired quickly on this project and didn’t follow the whole walk and happily called it a day. However, I was very impressed that their map does show alternate routes for those with prams or in wheelchairs. I love when there is some awareness of access issues. For those of you reading from overseas, you might recognise a certain icon that is visible on this walk!
