Neue Luxury is a global dialogue on luxury in the 21st century.

Neue Luxury




Carriageworks will present four large-scale art installations by leading Australian contemporary artists that will be unveiled on 8 January, 2020 as part of Sydney Festival. Rebecca Baumann, Daniel Boyd, Kate Mitchell and Reko Rennie have been commissioned by Carriageworks to create immersive and participatory artworks at the Redfern-based multi-arts institution that will be accompanied by a public program of talks and workshops.

While each presentation stands as a solo entity, they individually address a number of broad thematic ideas which include the concept of time, the use of light as a medium, the contrast of monumentality versus immateriality, and our basic interconnectivity as humans, collectively, the site specificity of the installations will engage audiences with the unique history and architecture of the Carriageworks precinct.

Carriageworks CEO Blair French commented, ‘Carriageworks is committed to working closely with artists to develop and present bold work that engages audiences with contemporary ideas and issues. We begin our 2020 program with major site-specific artworks that demonstrate Carriageworks’ commitment to social and cultural diversity. Two of these artworks are by Aboriginal artists, reflecting the importance of Carriageworks Aboriginal Arts Strategy to our overall Artistic Program.

2020 brings with it an array of Federal and State Government supported projects and activities commemorating the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s first voyage to Australia and the Pacific. Along with many of our peer institutions, Carriageworks will respond to this sensitive element of Australia’s history in the form of art-making, presentation and conversation led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and communities.

Our specific focus will be in bringing attention to regional South-Eastern Aboriginal Australia to celebrate the continuation of Aboriginal presence and place through a number of ambitious programs and multi-arts projects, with the presence of Reko Rennie’s REMEMBER ME at the entrance to Carriageworks throughout the year a constant reminder of the continuing impact of invasion.
