“A place to reflect upon our right to work and earn a fair wage.” Memory Lines is a memorial in Sydney, Australia, that has sociological interest, specifically to applied sociology. It commemorates workers who died at work, and provides a space to ruminate over the dignity and respect of all workers. It also pays respect to the traditional owners of this land, the Gadigal people. The statue was commissioned by Fair Work Australia, who look after the rights of workers.
“Lot Lost” the mind-expanding exhibition by Indonesian artist Eko Nugroho is on now at the Art Gallery of NSW.
The artist started making his zines two decades ago and later expanded to paintings, sculpture and other media. His work is equally political and immersed in pop culture, influenced by global issues, street art and sci fi, as much as by local relations and traditional Javanese art forms of wayang theatre and batik.
Well worth visiting for all ages, with hands-on art activities for kids.
