Event: Sydney Contemporary

This September, the annual international art fair is returning to Carriageworks for its fourth year running.

Held from September 13 to 16, Sydney Contemporary is bringing the largest and more diverse gathering of local and international galleries, showcasing the works of more than 300 leading and emerging artists from over 30 countries. Alongside the galleries, there will be curated sectors for contemporary video, installation art and performance as well as engaging panel discussions, guided tours and educational workshops.

The participating restaurants for this year are yet to be announced, but considering the impressive lineups from last year (Billy Kwong by Kylie Kwong and Kitchen by Mike McEnearney) and the year before (Longrain and Subcontinental), we can set our expectations high.

Tickets start from $10. For more information, visit the website.

September 13-16 | Carriageworks, 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh
