Last night IDG Communications leading publication and brand, CIO, got some extra excitement and positive buzz at their annual CIO Networking event at The Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney.

Human Statue Bodyart was engaged to supply dancers and statues for the prestigious event only after IDG Communications had conducted extensive research of the bodypainting, bodyart, human statue and performance art aspects of the Australian entertainment industry.

The goals of the CIO Networking event included: to education, to facilitate networking and business opportunities and to do it in a creative, stimulating and entertaining environment (that's where Human Statue dancers and statue performers came in).

The dancers, some of which were painted to compliment surrounding paintings in the gallery.

By all accounts, the dancers numerous rehearsals over the past weeks paid dividends, with special guests and management being suitably impressed with the quality of the entertainment. Over 100 special guests attended the networking event and the performers received plenty of compliments from the executives and event organisers.

The dancers and statues were prepared off-site, as per contract specification, and they were brushed up and giving final finishing touches on-site at the gallery. Only the finest bodypaint materials and special effects were used, to maintain the high standards of both the client and the creative arts company.

Ms Rinaldi said "We were delighted to create and deliver our entertainment, human statue and creative arts package for our valued client, IDG Communications. The CIO Networking event is one of their biggest events of the year, we are all very pleased that the job went ahead as planned and was delivered to spec and on budget. I'm very grateful to everyone who helped put together this event, from management, business partners, the talent, creative and beyond. This event followed our highly successful Australasian Law Awards event at Sydney Town Hall, and we're all very excited about the future of our company and clients. It's shaping up to be a very exciting and rewarding year for all of us. Interested parties can follow some of the excitement in the online galleries of Human Statue Bodyart and Human Entertainment".

It’s also a place to enjoy lectures and symposia, films, music and performances, meet friends for a meal or coffee in the cafe or restaurant, or browse in the Gallery Shop.

Brett Whiteley Studio
Brett Whiteley’s workplace and home in the inner-city suburb of Surry Hills is now a gallery and studio museum managed by the Art Gallery of NSW.
