Be the first to experience Patricia Piccinini’s new Skywhale family as Skywhale and Skywhalepapa take to the Canberra skies.

Bring your picnic blanket and thermos to watch Skywhale fly for the first time alongside her new companion Skywhalepapa, two monumental sculptures in the form of hot-air balloons.

A special live performance of We are the Skywhales by Jess Green with her band and the Luminescence Children’s Choir will create an immersive sonic experience.
