About Newtown ArtSeat

Newtown ArtSeat offers a space where experimental and non-commercial art can be showcased.

It is a permanent structure in Newtown Square that combines public seating, artwork display and lighting. The site is highly visible and exposes any artwork to thousands of passers-by each day. 

The ArtSeat has become a landmark in Newtown.

Public Housing Plan for Birds by Angela Robertson-Buchanan

Artist: ArtSeat by Angela Robertson-Buchanan

This work will be on display from 2 September to 2 December 2020

Artist Statement

These are the birds who live in the Inner-west.
When we cut down their trees and build on bushland, they are forced to move.
Imagine if we had a housing relocation initiative! Who would live where, who would like to be neighbours, who would be noisy?!
Please plant up our suburbs and think twice about removing trees un-necessarily.
Our home is their home.
