Eco-artists deliver a transformative experience in Royal Botanic Garden Sydney exhibition
The works of innovative and renowned eco-artists will take centre-stage at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in December 2021.
Transformation will encompass everything from haute couture and jewellery, to homewares, wall art, textiles and more — with all exhibits featuring recycled materials, including paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, metal and rubber, in addition to discarded and found objects.
Following the online pre-exhibition in August actual show starts on 11 December 2021 at The Palm House and The Moore Room (in the Royal Botanic Garden) and will excite all age groups. Entry is free of charge.
Curator Robbie Macintosh says Transformation is all about changing our perceptions of what qualifies as waste, and inspiring behavioural change. “We want to awaken our visitors’ collective conscience,” said Robbie.

I have six Kintsugi art items, saved from being discurded, in this exhibition which all profit will be donated to Dementia Australia. (private donation)
