At our new exhibition, Mining Pyrite, you'll see outstanding artworks from 20 local and international artists who have found a creative haven in our studios.

Mining Pyrite offers a comparison between the failure and success of Olympic Park through the work of artists for whom work and experimentation are synonymous. The constant testing and exploration of the boundaries of what does and doesn't work is the stock and trade of creativity. Over the past 12 years Sydney Olympic Park Authority has acknowledged and supported this endeavour through its Artists at the Armory program. Mining Pyrite is an exhibition that sheds light on the activities of the studios, as well as celebrating a history of the success of the residency and proving the point that if a studio exists for emerging artists, success may prevail over failure.

Curators Cassandra Hard-Lawrie and Nick Vickers have selected 20 artists who have occupied the studios and whose works exemplify a journey of exploration, a journey that demonstrates that creativity is not easy, a journey that traces the journey within the journey from failure to success. This curatorial selection includes artists who have had a close relationship with Sydney Olympic Park, including Mark Booth, Chris Bowman, Mark Brown, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, Louisa Dawson, Gary Deirmendjian, Judith Duquemin, Allan Giddy, John Gillies, Locust Jones, Akira Kamada, Michael Keighery, Wade Marynowsky, Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Meredith Peach, Jane Theau, Rachel Walls, Ken and Julia Yonetani.
