Between 8 and 11 September 2022, Artbank participated in Sydney Contemporary – one of Australia's biggest and most dynamic arts events of the year. A selection of their acquisitions was on display, including the newest pieces purchased at the fair.
Artbank curator Oliver Watts and art consultant Martin Tokarczky shared valuable tips on collecting and curating, and championed Artbank's unique leasing and artist support program.
Artbank is a unique government artist support and access initiative that enables organisations and individuals to lease artworks from an impressive collection of over 10,000 artworks. The income generated from the leasing program is directed back into supporting current and future generations of Australian artists.
After a three year hiatus, Sydney Contemporary welcomed over 90 galleries and 450 artists to Carriageworks in Sydney and included a full program of events and installations.
