Central Barangaroo Hoardings

Completed: 2021
Client: Infrastructure for NSW

Cultural Capital was appointed by Infrastructure NSW to commission a hoarding artwork for the Central Waterfront at Barangaroo.

Beginning at Dukes Pier, the hoarding structure runs for three hundred metres along the central waterfront construction site that borders Sydney Harbour.

As well as audiences of local visitors, weekend, regional, interstate and international tourists, the hoardings are highly visible to passengers on ferries entering and exiting the harbour. Cultural Capital paid close attention to both intimate and long range impacts of the artwork in their detailed public art report that included a curatorial framework, procurement models, project timeline and recommended budget with an aim to commission a work that would be viewed from multiple angles and perspectives.

Cultural Capital led the artist-selection process and curation of the commissioned artwork in consultation with Infrastructure NSW and the appointed Arts and Culture Panel. Renowned Indigenous artist, Danie Mellor was selected for the commission.
