Transformation – Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney

An exhibition challenging people’s perception of “rubbish”, celebrating the reuse and recycling of waste through art.

The works of almost 40 innovative and renowned eco-artists will take centre-stage at a new exhibition opening at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in August.

Transformation will encompass everything from haute couture and jewellery, to homewares, wall art, textiles and more — with all exhibits featuring recycled materials, including paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, metal and rubber, in addition to discarded and found objects.

Curator Robbie Macintosh says Transformation is all about changing our perceptions of what qualifies as waste, and inspiring behavioural change.

“We want to awaken our visitors’ collective conscience,” said Robbie. “Eco artistry is not just intriguing, beautiful and transformative; it is also about showing concern for the environment and encouraging us to adapt for a brighter future where we live more sustainably by rescuing items which would otherwise be discarded.

Location: The Palm House and Moore Room, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney Parking available on Mrs Macquaries Road
Exhibition Dates: Saturday 11 – Sunday 19 December 2021, 10 AM – 4 PM Open daily. All works are for sale.
