Saturday Snapshot 15th December

 
Last week I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney).
I haven't been for ages...years in fact.
However the MCA recently added on a new wing which prompted me to have another look.
 
An exhibition by Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro caught my eye.
They love to play around with IKEA furniture and other flat packed goods to create something new.
 
I loved their reinvented bookshelves 'World Lack' (below).
Check out this link if you'd like to see how they flat packed their house when they renovated!
 
 


The rest of the gallery was full of the curious, the odd, the breath-taking and the head-scratching pieces you would expect to see in a modern, contemporary museum!

 
 

 
 

 
The highlight of the excursion, though, was lunch!
 
The MCA created a new rooftop cafe during it's renovations.
The open space now looks out over Circular Quay and Dawes Point.




 
 
 
 
I'm sure there are better views for lunching than this in the world...
but right now I can't think of any of them!!

  1. That's an interesting post Brona. Great photos. I haven't been for a few years either, I remember seeing the Annie Liebowitz exhibition. I'm going to a party at the rooftop cafe next year- looking forward to it so much. The quay level cafe they had before was great, this looks even better.

  8. Great view. And modern museums are so fascinating, and sometimes so puzzling as well... thanks for sharing some of the exhibits. I am particularly taken with the cardboard/sharpie piece ;)
