Aesthetes everywhere, prepare to unleash your credit cards. Australia’s international art fair, Sydney Contemporary, has just launched an impressive online showcase which not only responds to the global pandemic climate, it aims to bolster the art community in the same gallant brushstroke.

Titled ‘Sydney Contemporary Presents 2020’, the portal will be live and shoppable from today (October 1), beginning with an offering of more than 450 artworks from 380-plus leading Australian and international artists. New and covetable pieces will join the line-up each week throughout the month-long presentation, until the window closes on October 31.

Rising above the disappointment that comes with Sydney Contemporary not being held on-site at Carriageworks this year, the program’s founder, Tim Etchells, believes the digitally presented fair will offer an equally uplifting experience in what has been a humdrum year. 

“2020 has been an extraordinary year on many levels,” says Tim. “We believe it is important – now more than ever – to support artists and the arts community, and we have created this new digital initiative specifically to do so.” 

It is a chance to acquire not just an artwork but a memory, something to look upon that was created during this unforgettable year.

The online show offers seasoned collectors and emerging art-lovers alike the opportunity to purchase new work by exciting contemporary artists, says Barry Keldoulis, fair director of Sydney Contemporary. 

“We encourage people to support the arts community in the most direct way possible – by purchasing the work of artists,” he adds. “It is a chance to acquire not just an artwork but a memory, something to look upon that was created during this unforgettable year.”

A selection of highlights from ‘Sydney Contemporary Presents 2020’ are displayed above and below.

At 99 years old, the Archibald Prize is still breaking records
With 99 storied years under its belt, the Archibald has presumably endured its share of disturbances in some shape or form since its inception in 1921. So, while this year’s pandemic climate may have reframed the timing of the program, true to form, it certainly hasn’t hindered the excellence of works entered. Nor has it stood as a roadblock.

Five (or so) minutes with artist Dan Kyle
When ferocious bushfires ravaged the region in late 2019 through to early 2020, Dan felt a gut-wrenching sense of loss, sadness and absolute helplessness. Darkness had descended upon his beloved bushland, and blackened earth and smoke-washed hot-glowing skies replaced the famous blue-green haze of the mountain range. Captivated by the rapidly changing natural environment and […]
