Sydney Contemporary have unveiled first details for the Fair’s eighth edition. The Fair has announced the initial list of 81 galleries and the curators for Installation Contemporary, Performance Contemporary and Talk Contemporary. Presented from 5 – 8 September 2024 at Carriageworks, this edition marks the first under the direction of new Fair Director Zoe Paulsen.

Since its foundation in 2013, Sydney Contemporary has established itself as Australia’s premier art fair, regularly attracting over 25,000 visitors at each edition. Last year, art sales exceeded $21million, recording a total of $121 million in art sales since its launch. The Fair is the pre-eminent meeting place for the art world, and critical to the growth of the art market in Australia.

The Fair program for Sydney Contemporary 2024 caters for collectors and the art-loving public alike, presenting engaging activities alongside the extensive artworks on show. Senior Curator at Artspace Talia Linz will curate Installation Contemporary, the section of the Fair dedicated to large-scale artworks, and Director of Friends with Strangers Samantha Watson-Wood will curate Performance Contemporary. Talk Contemporary will have two strands, one focused on architecture and design curated by Design Editor of Australian Financial Review Stephen Todd, and another on art curated by Curator of Contemporary Art at the Sydney Opera House Michael Do.

As a longtime supporter of contemporary artists we believe a vibrant arts community is an important pillar of our dynamic culture. We received amazing feedback from our guests and staff after last year’s event and are looking forward to again partnering with the team to help deliver Australasia’s premier contemporary art fair.
