Sculpture by the Sea 2019, Sydney’s outdoor coastal art space

By Jay Chabon

The 23rd Sculpture by the Sea is staging over 100 sculptures once again.

This Bondi-to-Tamarama coastal walk is the largest free to the public sculpture exhibition in the world.

Sculpture by the Sea is running from the 24th of October through to the 10th of November 2019.

If you’re setting off from Song Hotel for a day out in Bondi already, it’s a great tie-in, but do reserve a few hours to walk the two-kilometre trail, because there’s certainly some seeing to do.

Artists chosen for the exhibition will fashion materials such as bronzes, steels and acrylics into thematic statements on issues such as climate change and immigration and there will be cranes, trucks and some serious digging needed for installation.

You’ll be one of the hundreds of thousands to see this egalitarian (and free) show – the largest annual sculpture exhibition on the planet – and you can enhance your fun by picking up a $10 catalogue featuring all the artists, choosing your preferred route and hearing from the artists themselves at free talks.

To cap your tour, Song Hotel’s Mediterranean-inspired Song Kitchen is an ideal place to flick through your camera roll while you enjoy a drink over dinner.
