Immerse yourself in art with jaw-dropping installations from eight contemporary artists at the AGNSW

If you’ve ever walked the halls of the Art Gallery of NSW and smelt the scents of cumin, turmeric, paprika and cloves wafting towards you, you’ll be familiar with Ernesto Neto’s huge stalactite-like art installation 'Just like drops in time, nothing'.

Neto’s creation, alongside those by seven other contemporary installation artists, is on show as part of the gallery’s new exhibition Spacemakers and Roomshakers, which brings together works that create an immersive experience.

As well as Neto’s work, watch out for British artist Phyllida Barlow’s colossal 'untitled:brokenupturnedhouse' and Nike Savvas's 'Atomic: full of love, full of wonder', which features thousands of vibrating coloured balls.
