Carriageworks welcomes artists from all over for fourth annual Sydney Contemporary

Sydney Contemporary, Australasia’s premier international art fair, is returning to Carriageworks in September with a massive lineup for its fourth annual celebration.

While the main events will be staged at Carriageworks, partner venues across the city will be graced by performances over the three days, most notably for the return of the Night Cap series. The Bearded Tit, The Old Fitzroy and Artspace, among others, will host a selection of art-based events.

Held during Sydney Art Week, the lineup is teeming with performances, exhibitions, talks, tours and openings that celebrate both domestic and international art.

The program will extend as far as Barangaroo, where three large-scale commissions will take over the precinct from August 27 through to September 24. This year’s installations will include a movement-based performance by Mel O’Callaghan, an artistic shelter by Canadian-born Callum Morton and a wind-powered exhibition from Cameron Robbins.

On the performance side, Taipei-born Parisian artist River Lin, sonic impulse explorer Michaela Davis and vanishing art act Emily Parsons-Lord will host events back at Carriageworks. There is even a free talk series for all ticket holders, including a discussion with a panel of artists discussing the #MeToo movement and its effect on creative industries.

Billed as one of the most celebrated events on Australia’s cultural calendar, Sydney Contemporary has established itself as a must-attend art event and the perfect place to discover modern and contemporary art.
