#thearthunter Sydney Launch

On Tuesday 11th March, Jaguar’s C-X17’s made its Australian debut at the launch of #thearthunter, a pop-up art installation created by iconic website The Cool Hunter. The Art Hunter's 120 extraordinary art works have been collected by The Cool Hunter’s founder and Creative Director, Bill Tikos, curated by Diana Palmer of Palmer Art Projects and hung in a space in Alexandria designed by Sydney-based creative agency, The Artistry.

The interior of #thearthunter was carved out into discrete areas, each themed around colour, shape and texture, with mirrors, hidden doors, reflections and projections to constantly surprise, and reveal.

Two hundred of Sydney’s coolest guests, including Steve Pavlovic and Tanja Gacic, Felix Forrest and Edi Robinson, Carmen Hamilton, Nadia Fairfax, Fiona Myer and Luke Jacobz joined the The Cool Hunter’s Bill Tikos and Matthew Beaven, Jaguar’s Chief Exterior Designer, to experience the concept car first-hand.

Studio Neon’s Aaron Teece and Richard Robinson and Trollyed created an extraordinary, artistic food and wine experience to match the space. From Andy Worhol’s famous Campbell’s Tomato Soup, edible paint in tubes, and Zucchini flowers in a Van Gogh pot – the food and drink were as much a piece of art as the rest of the room.

CJ Hendry, 20-something independent artist, was the talk of the night with 7 of 8 artworks sold pre-exhibition.
