21 Aug: Luke Cornish mural

The Bondi mural

The Bondi Beach sea wall mural painted by Luke Cornish will be replaced after the completion of an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process run by Waverley Council staff.

The mural was a temporary installation undertaken in conjunction with “The Sea” Exhibition in the Bondi Pavilion Gallery as part of Council’s annual Bondi Winter Magic. This Exhibition was approved by Waverley Council staff under Council’s curatorial processes. This process included an EOI and a selection panel made up of staff and experts. Councillors were not involved in this selection process.

Artists who paint the Bondi Beach sea wall temporary murals do so at cost to themselves.

The curatorial process is at arm’s length from all Councillors and the process we have put in place will see this non-political approach to the replacement of Luke Cornish’s mural continue.
