Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea

Australia is a country rich in cultural events. If you are planning to travel there at the end of October - beginning of November, you can discover the exhibition Sculpture by the Sea...

What is Sculpture by the Sea?

Founded in 1997, "Sculpture by the Sea" is a free exhibition held on Bondi Beach, a suburb of Sydney. The coastal promenade is transformed into a park of beautiful, unusual and impressive sculptures. Sculptures by artists from all over the world are on display in the open air over a length of 2 km. This event captivates the imagination of Sydney and its visitors for three weeks. It is the largest annual sculpture exhibition in the world!

This exhibition was so successful that a second edition was created in 2005 on Cottesloe Beach, in Perth (located on the Australian coast of the Indian Ocean). This event is also appreciated by visitors in March of each year.
