Sydney launches new art fair in September

Tim Etchells, founder of ART HK (now Art Basel Hong Kong), will launch Sydney Contemporary in September. Unlike the Melbourne Art Fair, which has struggled to realise its international aspirations, Sydney Contemporary opens with a mix of 40% international and 60% Australian-based galleries. The new fair also includes two sections developed in partnership with Artspace and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art - Contemporary Video curated by  Mark Feary and Installation Contemporary curated by Aaron Seeto. The fair runs at Sydney's historic Carriageworks from 19 - 22 September.
