Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras have announced “a new fabulous inflatable art installation will take pride of place at Taylor Square to mark four decades” of the organisation.
City of Sydney’s Lord Mayor Clover Moore called the installation “big, bold and sassy artwork based on concepts of public protest, joyous celebration, community activation and engagement”.
Designed by artists Matthew Aberline and Maurice Goldberg from art studio Goldberg Aberline Studio, their 3 stories inflatable art installation will be on display towering over the iconic Taylor Square on Sydney’s Oxford Street later this month.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras shared a first look glimpse of the art on social media.
Wow! Here’s a special SNEAK PEEK at the giant inflatable art installation going up in Taylor Square later this month to celebrate 40 years of Mardi Gras! It’s going to be 3 storeys high when it’s up and finished!

DNA is yet to confirm if the installation will be inflated using the hot air captured from those opposing same-sex marriage during last years nationwide postal survey.
