“The 2015 UN Climate Change Conference kicks off today in Europe. And for the world leaders in attendance, including Malcolm Turnbull, there is a lot at stake. They are hoping to establish a binding global agreement on emissions reduction. And all over Paris – from the conference site to the city centre – artists are getting involved. Australian artist Janet Laurence is there with an installation called Deep Breathing (Resuscitation for the Reef), which examines the impact of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. The exhibition is part of the ‘Artists 4 Paris Climate 2015’ initiative and is currently on show at the Musuem d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.”
The much anticipated guide to Australia and New Zealand’s private collections is finally here. “The personalities and motivations of the collectors, together with carefully chosen properties, some with purpose-built structures, make these places unique oases for lovers of art.” Skadi Heckmueller
The book is an exclusive insight into impressive collections of art to be discovered by the reader. Although a few of the private collections described are well known institutions in their respective countries, the majority are practically unknown outside their region. To make visiting them easier and more fun, this practical guidebook includes many additional tips. The guide will help you discover these art gems, on both sides of the Tasman Sea.
