‘Armature sculpture’ makes a return to Sydney’s Art Gallery
Posted February 24, 2018 12:35:14 Sydney’s iconic Art Gallery, the city’s most visited attraction, will reopen this weekend.
The sculpture garden, which was closed to the public in 2019 due to a lack of funds, will be open again this weekend for a second time.

Moores work was also exhibited at the Royal Opera House in 2006.
Moors work has been on view at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London since 2012.
