The Newtown ArtSeat presents innovative contemporary art to the local community and provides artists and community groups with the opportunity to exhibit in public space for the purpose of experimental, non-commercial artistic outcomes.

The Newtown ArtSeat can be used for socio-historical exhibitions, collaborative work, photography, multi-media or any other form of cultural expression conceived for this purpose built structure and location.

The Newtown ArtSeat is brought to you by Marrickville Council, with support from Arts NSW and the City of Sydney.

Elizabeth West – Bound

Elizabeth West, 'Bound', at Newtown ArtSeat

Created with plastic packing strips that are salvaged from urban environments, Bound reminds us of what is often overlooked; that plastics are intricately woven into our lives. The scale of the work invites reflection on our relationship to environments and resources. The thousands of tiny stitches show how small choices can be repeated, contributing to something bigger. Bound is offered as a colourful celebration of the sustainable culture that is cultivated in the Marrickville region.
