Event description

Edge of Chaos - 12 March - 1 April 2022: FINAL DAYS

Sydney's first hybrid art & NFT exhibition Edge of Chaos is a reflection of the current state of the world: divided, online and offline, thriving and surviving, chaos and control. 

Featuring award-winning stencil artist, E.L.K, the journey spans two floors in within a landmark The Streets of Barangaroo location, marrying the real and virtual worlds, showcasing the struggles of reality and the promise of the metaverse and NFTs.

In his signature style, E.L.K explores the zeitgeist of our times; the seemingly apocalyptic 2020s as we balance on the edge of chaos before seeing light and hope.

The real life exhibition will also be accompanied by a metaverse gallery that can be experienced via VR headset within the exhibit.
