ICC Sydney in art move

Australia’s International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has celebrated the launch of a limited edition commemorative book, ICC Sydney Art Collection: A Curated Collection of Art to Celebrate Sydney.
Displayed across the convention centre’s main theatre foyer spaces and across the Darling Harbour precinct, the collection is one of the most significant of any convention venue.
 
It includes major pieces from Brett Whiteley, John Olsen, Sandra Leveson, Lloyd Rees and Tim Storrier, alongside key works from esteemed Aboriginal artists such as Gloria TamerrePetyarre and Long Jack Phillipus Tjakamarra that highlight the significance of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage to the venue.
 
Geoff Donaghy, chief executive ICC Sydney said the venue is proud to be the custodian of such a dynamic range of artwork, which reflects its place within the broader cultural fabric of the city.
 
“While the collection is varied and includes both prized works commissioned for the first convention and exhibition centre in Darling Harbour and key contemporary additions, the thread which pulls all of them together comes from the cultural life of Sydney, where artists have responded in some way to the city, its harbour and its foreshores."
