Description

UNSW Galleries presents

Panel Discussion: Keep Sydney Public

The recent media furore surrounding use of the Sydney Opera House sails for advertising highlights larger tensions around the use of public space. Bringing together architects, anti-gentrification activists, sociologists and cultural commentators, this panel discussion explores the argument for maintaining Sydney’s public housing and spaces.

Moderated by artist Ian Millis and including local activist and resident Julie Cooper, architect and urban designer Professor Phillip Thalis, sociologist Eva Cox AO, and Wiradjuri woman and Aboriginal rights activist Bronwyn Penrith.

Presented as part of the exhibition The Beehive at UNSW Galleries.

The Beehive was produced by Philippa Bateman. An Enigma Machine Production. An Artbank + ACMI Commission. Exhibition runs from 5 January to 23 February 2019.




This event forms part of the ‘Radical Sydney’ public program. Taking its title from Terry Irving and Rowan Cahill's book on dissident politics and actions in Sydney this program of talks, documentary screenings and performances engages with the histories and futures of local activism concerned with housing, public space, sexuality and gender.
