SYDNEY MUSEUM OF WORDS IS BACK, NOW IN THE ROCKS

Sydney Museum of Words will be showcasing words on loan from some of the great names of our generation, such as The Queen Her Majesty, Tony Abbott, Ghassan Hage, and Julian Assange. The exhibition will provide locals and tourists a collection of only the best words that Australia – and Sydney – has to offer.

SMOW invites people to spend time reflecting on words and their meanings outside of their every-day context. For example, even the word ‘Sydney’ has a rich meaning, deriving from Saint Denis who was a third-century French saint.

Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-5pm, at 73 George street

The exhibition ‘We are Family’ celebrates diversity and difference

The families within the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual (GLBTQI) communities are forming a new sociology, driving new understandings and redefining what makes a “family”.

The artists (including our previous participant Annie Magdalena Laerkesen) are responding to the phrase We Are Family to express their ideas of what is “family”. Some of the works are highly personal and intimate representations of their families while other works highlight ideas about the concept of family.
