Sydney Contemporary, Australasia’s premier art fair, has today announced that the sixth edition of the Fair will be presented from 11 – 14 November 2021 at Carriageworks in Redfern, Sydney. The Fair, which was initially scheduled to be presented in September, has been rescheduled in light of the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions for Greater Sydney.
Sydney Contemporary 2021 marks one of the first physical art fairs in Australia since 2019 and will present over 80 galleries from Australia and New Zealand featuring work by more than 450 artists hailing from over 40 countries. The Fair represents the largest concentration of art sales annually in Australasia.
Sydney Contemporary Founder Tim Etchells said, “With the help of our longstanding venue partner Carriageworks, are grateful for the opportunity to reschedule this year’s edition of Sydney Contemporary to November. Carriageworks is a very special venue, and we are delighted they were able to find a date line that would work for us this year. We look forward to hosting a safe and successful event for our galleries, artists, partners, collectors and visitors in November.”
In 2021 MA Financial Group, formerly Moelis Australia, joins as the Principal Partner for Sydney Contemporary. MA Financial Group Head of Asset Management Andrew Martin commented: “In light of current circumstances, we are pleased that Sydney Contemporary have been able to reschedule the art fair to November. As Principal Partner of the 2021 event, and a long-time supporter of contemporary art in Australia, it is of the utmost importance to MA Financial Group that we create a safe and enjoyable experience for both our clients and the public, as well as continue to support the arts community during this time.”
