A biannual exhibition of sculpture and installation art that responds to the politics and poetics of shared green space in the city.

Cross-pollinations recalls the history of Maundrell Park as a former plant nursery containing seedbeds, ferneries, fishponds and a hothouse. The exhibition brings together local artists with those from further afield, and seeks to propagate new perspectives on how our ‘natural’ environment is understood, shaped and contested.

Exhibiting artists include James Gulliver Hancock, Indonesian collective Tanam Untuk Kehidupan, Brendan Penzer (presenting an interactive art marathon involving 100 sculptures shown over 5 hours…), Jane Gillings, Greg Shapley, Elke Wohlfahrt, Rebecca Pearson, Huyen-Trang Tran, Tessa Rapaport & Karl Logge and Nobody.

Presented by Marrickville Council, ‘Art in the Park’ is now in its fourth year, and continues to showcase the work of emerging and established artists in a unique outdoor gallery space.

Bring along a picnic and be a part of the conversation.
