Sydney Contemporary at Carriageworks

Thu 8th September, 2022 – Sun 11th September, 2022
Carriageworks, 254 Wilson Street, Eveleigh.
More than 90 leading galleries will exhibit the work of over 450 artists, plus a program of talks, performances, workshops and activations all under one roof.

For four art-filled days in September (8-11), Sydney Contemporary will transform Carriageworks into one of Australia’s largest art fairs.

Returning for its first physical event since 2019, Sydney Contemporary will include hundreds of emerging and established contemporary artists showcasing a diverse range of genres and mediums. Visitors will have the opportunity to be inspired by (and purchase) works from some of the most exciting creatives in the Australasian region – and the accompanying art events program is just as impressive.

The Fair kicks off its opening night in partnership with Glenfiddich on Thursday September 8, with an immersive evening of art, music, performance and food. Artist Justene Williams will present She predicted the Weather – a new work featuring three sculptures shaped like boats swung by performers to a musical score – and Michaela Gleave will present Cosmic Time, a “guided journey into the depths of existence”. The evening also feature performances by WeiZen Ho and Rakini Devi.

A curated night of music, talks and performance will take place the following evening with its Friday Night Art Night event. Highlights include the talk, NFTs: Sizzle or Fizzle, which will explore the state of NFTs post crypto’s crash, and performance pieces by Alli Sebastian and Jonny Seymour.

Also find pop-up bars by Campari, Champagne Duperrey, Four Pillars, Glenfiddich and Yalumba Wines, along with Australian fare and Italian charcuterie platters.
