Yes, Vivid Sydney is a time to take in bright lights on our streets, but it's also a time to bask in the local talent and creative expression in music, food and visual arts. And this year, plenty are getting in on the action. Take the Hollywood Quarter for example, the micro-precinct near Central Station home to some of Surry Hills' favourite haunts and, during Vivid Sydney, a whole bunch of installations and events.

At Paramount House, multidisciplinary Sydney artist Aedan Lee (pictured at top) is using sculpture, light and design to ponder the question 'Can there be order in chaos?' with UNION. The partially suspended dynamic piece (pictured below) brings lasers into the mix too, and will be on show every night from 6pm throughout Vivid's 2023 run.

Entry to see Lee's work is free, but you should make a night of it and stay for a drink at the onsite subterranean cocktail lounge Golden Age Bar (and maybe catch a flick), or head to nearby Poly for a glass of vino and a few perfect plates.

Hollywood Quarter's Paramount House Hotel will be hosting Aedan Lee's 'UNION' throughout Vivid Sydney 2023. For more information and to plan your trip, head to the website.
