Jennifer Turpin - Artist & Art Advisor to Central Park

For artist Jennifer Turpin, the opportunity to put her artistic stamp on the old Kent Brewery was a challenge she couldn’t resist. 

“For 170 years, the Central Park site operated continuously as a brewery, which is fascinating to an artist. No one except those who worked in the brewery could see what was going on. It was a city within a city,” says Turpin, explaining her fascination with Central Park’s industrial history.

Turpin, together with Sydney artist Michaelie Crawford, is curating several major artworks that will transform Central Park into a gallery for art, sculpture, light projections and installations. 

As Central Park evolves, these artworks will begin to appear across the site in often-unexpected places. In addition to several permanent artworks – including Patrick Blanc’s vertical garden and Yann Kersale’s heliostat, which will adorn the façade of One Central Park – Turpin is also commissioning an evolving collection of temporary public artworks, including the Artists in Residence Project.

This is a really exciting opportunity for artists to be involved with the construction process at Central Park. We hope to use the site as a lively and interesting canvas for art, and begin talking about the site’s history and sustainability through the artworks.

“An old brewery site is becoming a 21st century destination for design, art and technology – that's a really interesting environmental story to talk about. A lot of local artists will be interested in creating artworks that celebrate and highlight that phenomenon,” says Turpin, who is represented by Sherman Galleries in Sydney.
