Art Month Sydney

Make the most of the remaining balmy evenings as Art Month Sydney kicks off a citywide celebration of contemporary art. The ninth annual festival is painting the town red (and every other colour) with exhibitions, workshops, talks, tours and the much-loved Precinct Nights. Galleries are keeping their doors open late across different parts of the city each Thursday (and the last Friday) in March, which means you can embark on a curated walking tour of local exhibitions, then round off the evening with an Art at Night Party.

Dates: 1st - 25th March
