“Sculpture By The Sea 2018”: Sydney’s Annual Beachside Art Exhibition

Grey skies threatened to dull the first days of Sculpture by the Sea, Sydney’s free annual beachside art exhibition, with the unveiling of 107 sculptures along a 2km stretch of coastline at Bondi. While heavy rain over the past few weeks meant a handful of sculptures were yet to be installed, a burst of warm weather on Saturday saw crowds turning up to catch a glimpse of the quirky, startling, contemplative and surreal oceanside artworks.
