Deloitte has joined forces with Art Pharmacy to curate a landmark art collection for its new office in the award-winning Quay Quarter Tower building in Sydney’s Central Business District. Composed of a sliding scale of 20 Sydney-based artists that range from emerging to established, Regeneration for Deloitte x Art Pharmacy is a multi-modal tableau of tradition and innovation that articulates the interconnectedness of Sydney’s art scene and its diverse raft of creatives

The process began with an internal workshop by the Deloitte Digital team that ensured the core tenets of sustainability, open-mindedness and innovation were embedded into the curatorial process. With that grounding established, Art Pharmacy was able to take on the meat of the project: commissioning a mix of artists and pieces that are tautly aligned with the Deloitte ethos of regeneration – an intermingling of old and new. For example, sustainability, as one of the key through-lines, takes shape in a lot of Naarm/Melbourne-based artist and experimental designer Jessie French’s work with algae. Multiple pieces sourced from Deloitte’s existing collection have been re-curated into the new installation.
