Francis Upritchard's Here Comes Everybody unveiled at the Art Gallery of New South Wales

The Art Gallery of New South Wales commissioned Francis Upritchard as one of the artists to create major new works for its transformed art museum campus, which opened on December 3 to the public.

Three monumental figures, collectively titled Here Comes Everybody, inspired by mythology and folklore – and Sydney Harbour's Moreton Bay fig trees – now greet visitors at the Museum's new Welcome Plaza, enticing guests of all ages. The sculptures – which she brought to life in her Italian studio – create a place where fact and fiction combine to create a new reality.⁠ The artist notes, “As you approach them, my long and improbable mystical creatures invite intrigue and wonder: who are they, what are they doing and how do I respond to them?"
