Headlining Act

Neil Dawson’s Fanfare sculpture provided the focal point for Sydney’s famous New Year celebrations. The 20m steel sphere, studded with more than 300 light reflective pinwheels, was suspended from the Harbour Bridge in the semblance of a giant disco ball. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore described Fanfare as “stunningly beautiful.” The sculpture remained on display for the entire month of January. Dawson’s sculptures have hung in Paris, Kuala Lumpur, and Canberra as well as in Wellington’s Civic Square and Victoria University.
