In the footsteps of Martin Sharp
In the company of Joyce Morgan, biographer of Australia’s most internationally acclaimed pop artist, discover the pivotal role Martin Sharp played in the artistic explosion of Sydney in the 1970s.
Uncover Sharp’s enduring legacy with a private viewing of his works in the Prints and Drawings Room at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Then, visit the little-known Children’s Chapel at St James’ Church to understand Sharp’s intriguing relationship with faith and explore how his art of psychedelic colours was inspired by the vibrancy of the harbourside city with a private visit to his former home in Bellevue Hill, Wirian.
End in Potts Point to understand the history of the Yellow House, in which Martin Sharp created a bohemian mecca for artists inspired by his spirit of collaboration, before enjoying dinner in a restaurant in the suburb’s leafy streets.
