We are proposing an exciting itinerary of exhibitions and events for our members’ trip this September! You are invited to attend VIP events at Sydney Contemporary! Sydney Contemporary, Australasia’s premier art fair, welcomes over 90 leading galleries, presenting the work of over 450 artists from 34 countries alongside an ambitious four-day and dynamic night-time program of curated exhibitions, ground-breaking installations, performance art, tours, and talks.

Our itinerary will also include visiting the studio of Idris Murphy, and viewing exhibitions of interest such as Vivienne Binns at the MCA and Robert Hirschmann at King Street on William, as well as visiting the private collection of Geoff Hassall.

You will meet us in Sydney and enjoy a daily programs of activities. However, nothing is compulsory. You have the freedom to choose the days and times to meet with the group.
