PLAYGROUND OF THE PACIFIC
ANNE ZAHALKA

A  major survey show reflecting on the mythologies of the beach and its community.

From the early and celebrated Bondi: Playground of the Pacific, 1989, through to the celebrated Leisureland, 1999, a series which documented the central place of leisure in Australian culture, and more recently Homeground, 2010, a series which explores the cultural characteristics of Sydney suburbs, an exhibition that continues to engage with contemporary art and its audience through the cultural lens of the beach.
