The fight to get Sydney's polarising Sirius building heritage-listed and safe from demolition continues, with the latest initiative running in the form of an art exhibition, titled This Is Sirius.

Featuring a whopping 60 works, the show is a celebration of both the building and its residents, featuring photographs, paintings, prints and sculptures. If you can't afford to take one home (they're rather reasonably priced, so there's a chance you will), then check out the Sirius zines, t-shirts, tea-towels and badges. The majority of artists will be donating proceeds to the Save Our Sirius campaign.

The only catch is the exhibition isn't around for long. It launches on June 8 with a speech from Councillor Philip Thalis (founding principal of Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects) on behalf of Lord Mayor Clover Moore and closes on the June 16. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm daily.
