Work Free Wednesday @agnsw

Work-free Wednesday has been continuing over the last few months during the COVID-19 lockdown. As I mentioned a few months ago, I have “excess leave”, and rather than take a block of holidays, I’ve been taking one day off each week.

When it all started, I was going to galleries, swimming, catching up with friends and doing lots of other wonderful activities.

However, with the lockdown there hasn’t been all that much I’ve been able to do outside home. Lots of cooking, lots of cleaning, a fair bit of reading and catch-up TV has characterised the last few months.

And then on Monday, the Art Gallery of NSW re-opened. To limit numbers, you need to “book in” for a time, and that’s exactly what I did today.

As well as lots of new works, they’ve also brought out some “classic” works of the twentieth century. Here’s a few of my favourites currently on display.

Mao by Andy Warhol
The awesomeness of Yves Klein blue.
The happiness of a Jeff Koons puppy and the iconography of Gilbert & George

It was such a joy to see such wonderful works.

It was also such a joy to be able to wander around and, once again, enjoy the atmosphere of the Art Gallery of NSW.
