We visited on the hottest day in Syudney's history: 45.8 degrees (18 January 2013). If nothing else, the airconditioning was a lifesaver.
It's a beautiful building but the content was in the main, a disappointment compared to other galleries we know here in Aust: MoNA (Tas) NGA, NGV or the AGNSW. While all art is a matter of taste and it was clear that some visitors were engaging with some of the content, we found this was a bit of a let down. MoNA leaves this in the shade.
Two things made the day.
The brilliant Kapoor exhibition ( pay a fee to enter) evokes a level of engagement you don't see in many places. It is thought provoking, entertaining, and even makes you laugh in places.
The cafe on Level Four : It's a pity they do not sell large coffees, and that the small coffees presented to us were not hot enough. But that disappointment could not spoil a truly sparking view of the best of the Emerald City.
