I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

See It In Sydney While You Can
The Art Gallery of NSW is hosting an exhibition of over 100 pieces that represent the human body in all its naked glory. There is a program of related events running at various times during the exhibition.

You can't miss it

Nude:art from the Tate Collection is an exploration of nudity through the ages and features pieces from some of the world's greatest artists such as Matisse, Rodin and Picasso. As well as paintings there are photographs, sculptures, bronzes and drawings many of which have never seen before in Australia.

Nudity in various forms

It was interesting to see how nudes were portrayed through history from the romantic smooth, hairless, impossibly beautiful to the more modern realistic hairy, dimpled and 'ugly'. The attendees were as varied as the exhibits, old, young, couples, and groups.

Larger than life

There is no need to book and you can pre-purchase tickets though QTix or buy at the entry. It is very popular so the free audio guide and brochure help to explain some of the artworks while you are waiting to get closer to them, I suggest taking your time as it may be the only chance you have to see these pieces. I found it to be a challenging and thought-provoking exhibition as well as a short lesson on art history.
