The Biennale of Sydney’s letter to ANMM: "Congratulations on an absolutely wonderful evening…I think your vision and idea of Entr’acte in the Museum and Darling Harbour space was exciting and obviously worked very well. The media review was good and the opening audience was obviously enthralled by the outstanding spaces. ….”
