Together with Highsnobiety, we're taking over the Paramount House Hotel for two days.
Running from May 26-27, the immersive experience brings together music, fashion, cinema, art and design – in what will be a completely unique experience comprising exhibitions, installations, a talks programme, live and digital performances, film screenings, commercial pop-ups and tastings.
Oh, and tickets are free.
Bookings open in the coming weeks. For first access make sure you've subscribed to the SP mailing list.
If you can't make it to Sydney, we'll be hosting a line up of dedicated digital content to coincide with the real-life event on the hotel microsite.
Hotel rooms will be transformed into Semi Permanent exhibits curated by our favourite local, and global artists and talent.
Film director and screenwriter Gia Coppola will present an exhibition of new and unseen photography. Musician Flume and artist Jonathan Zawada will present an exhibition of their new NFT digital artworks - 'Tiddalik'. Surfboard shaper Hayden Cox of Haydenshapes will exhibit 'Wave Relic,' their new collaboration with apparel designer Chris Stamp and artist Daniel Arsham.
