New art at Newtown ArtSeat by Elia Bosshard

Wednesday 17 March 2021

The latest ArtSeat is a commentary on how Sydney perceives its creative community, and asks, “Who is the beating heart of Sydney, the creative-creators or profit-makers?”

Creative Space, Creative Capital by Elia Bosshard is an ad-style poster that queries what creative space, and creativity itself, actually is.

Elia has used authentic Sydney real estate signage, designed to capture attention like a property ‘for-sale’ sign.

“Sydney is one of the most expensive cities to live and work in the world,” she said.

“For local artists, it is an ongoing struggle maintaining access to the cultural centre, which paradoxically, thrives on and profits from the arts community.”

Council’s ArtSeat is a permanent structure in Newtown Square that provides local, emerging and established artists with a space where experimental and non-commercial art can be showcased.

Incorporating public seating and lighting, the ArtSeat is also a landmark meeting point.
