Consisting of more than 60,000 strips of coloured plastic and stretching more than 50 metres through the building, it is one of the largest individual works ever staged at the Art Gallery of NSW.

A rally is a parade or protest that occurs in public space. And ’to rally’ is also to come back forcefully from a position of retreat or disadvantage. Walking beneath this new work, viewers join a rally of Savvas’s invention, drawn in and swept along by the power of colour in motion.

Now on extended display.
