The AGNSW’s remarkable summer blockbuster exhibition Kandinsky is the largest ever showcase of artist Vasily Kandinsky’s work to be hung in Australia. Last week, we invited Access members to enjoy an exclusive look at the exhibition away from the crowds.

The evening kicked off with bubbles, roaming canapés and excited chatter in the foyer of the gallery’s iconic South Building. We then heard fascinating insights from AGNSW curator Jackie Dunn in conversation with Broadsheet editor Emma Joyce, such as how Kandinsky’s synaesthesia (a condition that causes your brain to experience more than one sense simultaneously) impacted his work. The pair also chatted about the artist’s use of colour, with green representing the bourgeois and white being “pregnant with possibility”.

Guests then had the chance to roam the exhibition at their own pace – a special experience that allowed them to appreciate the works more intimately.
