The NSW Government is redeveloping the Sydney Football Stadium (SFS) into a modern, world-class venue, ensuring Sydney has a sporting and entertainment precinct of an international standard.
The site is on the original stadium at Moore Park, Sydney. The site is located at 40-44 Driver Avenue, Moore Park within the Sydney Cricket Ground Precinct. It is approximately 3km from the Sydney CBD and 2km from Central Station.
The SFS Art Program will encompass a diverse range of works that will be integrated throughout the whole of the public domain. The program will consider the needs of the stadium’s many different audiences, from those who use Moore Park for daily recreation to those who visit the stadium for a once in a lifetime event. The art program offers new ways to experience SFS’s public domain: increasing access and engagement to the site’s heritage and culture: and contributing significant new artworks to the extended cultural ecosystem of the city.
Commissions will include; ground plane etching, sculpture; sound work; suspended light sculpture; artwork integrated into the sports surface (including basketball area); artist designed stadium seating; and artwork integrated into an architectural wind screen component. Artworks should encourage audience engagement and invite interaction, photography and exploration.
