Innovative partnership gives travellers an Australian cultural experience, promotes local artist
A partnership between Sydney Airport and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is raising the profile of Australian artists through a major installation of Kamilaroi artist Archie Moore’s United Neytions in the airport’s T1 International Marketplace area. The artwork comprises 28 flags suspended from the ceiling. Moore has said the artwork “celebrates issues of place and identity [on] a scale and status that official international flags have; drawing attention to the histories, voices and presence of local Indigenous people on which land the airport – an international zone/’no man’s land’ – lies, but also the passages of cultures, pasts, territories, ages and cultural knowledges that airports foster”.
