Australia’s largest and most diverse gathering of local and international galleries comes together at Carriageworks from today until Sunday. The Sydney Contemporary arts fair will transform the Carraigeworks precinct into a multi-disciplinary arts space. Showcasing over 95 galleries and the works from more than 450 artists from 34 different countries.
Fair audiences will have the opportunity to view thousands of new contemporary artworks, engage in talks and see eight bold performance works including one-night-only access to Tony Albert’s Confessions and Nell’s premiere of Ghost Songs for Rock Gate.
“I have been following the galleries’ extensive preparations for their presentations with growing excitement, and I know this will be our best fair to date!” said Sydney Contemporary Director, Barry Keldoulis.
This year will mark the fifth iteration of Sydney Contemporary and will be looking to build on the success of prior years. Across the first four years of the event, more than 112,000 people were drawn to witness the exhibitions, with those attendees contributing to more than $40 million in art sales.
Sydney Contemporary is not just for the cashed-up collector though. Throughout the four day event, Carriageworks will play host to a vast range of talks, installations, performances and kids activities. So there will be something for everyone!
