Partnering with Art Month Sydney is an ongoing opportunity for NAB Private Wealth to contribute to Australia’s creative and cultural community. Supporting thousands of artists and the sustainability of the contemporary art industry, we’re proud to announce that we remain Principal Partner of Art Month Sydney for the seventh consecutive year.
Between 1-20 March 2016, we celebrate Sydney as a complex engine that drives human creativity. Journey from the schools, non-profits and ARIs that nurture talent, through the commercial galleries and private and corporate collections that foster the careers of artists, to the institutions that exhibit and harbour the work for future generations. With more than 400 exhibition artists, 300 art events and 100 art spaces across Sydney, there’s plenty to see and do!
Artistic director Barry Keldoulis’ s program invites you to explore artists' studios and take artist-led tours. Hear from experts as they tackle art questions at the free Talks Program. Get to know Sydney's diverse art precincts by foot, bike or bus with the Art Tours series. Take part in Art at Night, which includes late night gallery openings and Art Bars. Immerse yourself in Collector's Space, a unique pop up exhibition which brings works from private collections to the public.
