THE RESERVOIRS The Domain, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Contemporary art has lost its presence within the city. ‘The Reservoirs’ project identifies an urban void within the city fabric as an opportunity to re-politicise art. Whilst the city shifts under the dictates of commercial pressure, public art thrives – resisting the large ‘white-box’ model of gallery development that has limited the dialogue between art and city. The project evolves the notion of a gallery, shifting the emphasis to the public realm and providing new ways to experience and comprehend the social culture of contemporary art and architecture.
