Art Month is now in its third year and has grown to become a fully-fledged celebration of contemporary art in all its forms, playing out across Sydney for the month of March. Artistic director Eliza Muldoon shaped Art Month’s program with the aim of being as inclusive as possible, with parties, performances, talks and tours for children attracting those knowledgeable about contemporary art and curious newcomers alike.
Spanning more than 100 commercial and public galleries, along with artist run initiatives, TV studios and theatres across the city, Art Month showcases the breadth and diversity of Sydney’s visual art scene. Program highlights include The Bluffers Guide to Contemporary Art with art critic, writer and broadcaster Andrew Frost and the (very nearly sold out) talk with art collector extraordinaire John Kaldor, facilitated by Fenella Kernebone.
With so many exhibitions, we recommend taking an ARI Tour through Chippendale on March 17 or the Art Cycle tour through the CBD to see a selection of works. For the tech savvy, there is the dLux MediaArts sculpture walk with Warren Armstrong. Visitors will discover artworks by local and international artists using a smart phone, iPhone, tablet or iPad.
Art Month runs until March 25.
