CULTURAL PRECINCT

CITY COMPLETES CULTURAL PRECINCT FIRST STAGE The removal of construction fencing at the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct marked project completion on time and on budget of the $37.5 million amphitheatre and concert lawn. Designed to accommodate a full range of performances, events and civic celebrations, and audiences of up to 5000, the striking amphitheatre and sweeping concert lawn, is ready to explore. The city’s newest cultural infrastructure is being handed over to The Arts Centre Gold Coast to manage. As the city’s home of arts and culture, it is developing a strong artistic led program with details and the opening program to be announced early 2018.

While the facility has marked practical completion, access to the concert lawn will be restricted to allow the lawns to establish. Residents and visitors to the precinct will however be able to explore the external stage, paths, new amenities building and adventure trail over the amphitheatre with breathtaking views of the Surfers Paradise skyline. The stage is large enough for a symphony orchestra with the versatility of being turned into a black box theatre or a seated private function room for about 200 people. Completion marks five years of planning and construction which started with the international design competition in 2013.

COMING INTO FASHION

A CENTURY OF PHOTOGRAPHY AT CONDÉ NAST EXHIBITION Fashion photography has gripped us for well over a century since the first cameras were developed. Many of the legends like Mario Testino, Deborah Turbeville, and Helmut Newton achieved their greatness at the fashion magazine studios of Condé Nast in New York, Paris, and London. With unprecedented access to the archives of each fashion-forward city, the Coming into Fashion exhibition tracks and highlights the sparkling intersection that fuses fashion and photography. In addition to the catalogue of iconic images, the exhibition also includes a selection of vintage couture from The Darnell Collection – Australia’s largest private fashion collection spanning a period from the late 1700s to the 20th Century. A curation of seminal fashion films and documentaries will also be screened throughout the Coming into Fashion season. Style it up and comb through what is a truly international fashion experience.
