Australasia’s international art fair, Sydney Contemporary, returns this September with an expanded footprint that will see the major biennial contemporary art event take over the entire Carriageworks precinct in Sydney’s Redfern.
Held from Thursday 10 until Sunday 13 September 2015, the second edition of Sydney Contemporary builds upon the success of the inaugural event held in September 2013 that attracted more than 28,000 visitors over four days. Sydney Contemporary 2015 is Australia’s largest art fair and will feature more than 75 respected galleries, over 30% of which are international.
Fair Director Barry Keldoulis has revealed the initial list of Australian and international galleries confirmed to participate, which includes 19 new names to the fair spread over an expanded footprint of seven large-scale exhibition spaces.
Sydney Contemporary 2015 will offer visitors access to a cutting-edge line-up that includes some of the best emerging and established artists from Australia and around the world. International highlights include, Pearl Lam Galleries, Ingleby Gallery and Mark Moore Gallery. While our home-grown highlights include a solo exhibition by Jan Murphy Gallery.
The strong gallery line up will be supplemented with a dynamic, four-day public program including contemporary video and innovative art installations, children’s activities and a talks-and-tours program as well as a pop-up restaurant by Longrain, Sydney’s much‐loved dining institution.
Tickets for Sydney Contemporary will go on sale on 25 May and will be available to purchase from sydneycontemporary.com.au
