My Melbourne Trip

So over the Anzac day Long weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to go on a trip to Melbourne! The last time I went was about 5 years ago so I don’t really remember much of it but was super excited to go again!

What we were both really looking forward to was Ai Wei Wei and Andy Warhol’s exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria! It was going to finish in the 26th if April so we luckily got there in time! We caught a plane from Sydney wednesday night after work, stayed for a couple of days and then flew to Tasmania! (which I’ll write about in a separate post!)

The exhibition was amazzzinngg! I loved it so much! We also checked out another art gallery, ate heaps of food at Heston Blumenthal’s “Dinner” restaurant (so sad we missed the Fat Duck but I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t have even gotten a table there seeing as you had to enter a raffle haha), went shopping and explored Brunswick, visited a few record stores (where I found out Prince passed away!!) and generally just had a really relaxing time! It was a really nice getaway .. it felt like I was overseas even though we weren’t!

Here are a few photos from our trip!
I hope to print out quite a few of them and make a photo album! (I’ve been meaning to make one for aggesssss but just havn’t had the time to/am too lazy to)

bienalle at cockatoo island

I’ve been waiting for the Biennale to start back up in Sydney since the end of last year! It’s basically an art exhibition that runs in Sydney every two years and showcases a variety of international work across different galleries and locations! Some of the locations include the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Museum of Contemporary Art and Carriageworks. The Biennale at Cockatoo Island in particular has always been my favourite! It’s currently running from the 18th of March until the 5th of June. I’ve been to two previous exhibits and have always been in awe of the art I’ve seen there! Here are a couple of snaps that I took on the day! Although I did enjoy my time there I feel like it was not as interesting as previous years. I think that may have been because they have spread out the artwork more amongst other locations so I will definitely take the time to explore other artwork while the Biennale is still on!
