Art Fairs | Sydney Contemporary, Australia

Sydney Contemporary is Australasia's premier art fair, renowned as the largest and most diverse gathering of leading contemporary art galleries in the region. Established in 2013 by Tim Etchells, a seasoned events and fairs specialist, Sydney Contemporary has grown to become a pivotal event in the international art scene, attracting art enthusiasts, collectors, and professionals from around the globe.

The fair is held annually at Carriageworks, providing a significant platform for curated solo or group exhibitions of new and important works from artists represented by leading galleries worldwide. Sydney Contemporary showcases a wide array of artistic mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation art, and more, offering visitors an unparalleled opportunity to immerse themselves in a world of artistic expression.

One of the key features of Sydney Contemporary is its commitment to fostering a dialogue between artists, curators, and the public. The fair hosts a series of talks, panel discussions, and artist-led tours, providing a platform for intellectual discourse and a deeper understanding of the art world. These events offer attendees the chance to engage with artists, curators, and experts, gaining insights into the creative process, artistic movements, and the stories behind the artworks on display.

Over the years, Sydney Contemporary has established itself as a major event in the city's cultural calendar, attracting thousands of visitors and contributing significantly to the local economy.
