The Sydney International Art Series showcases ground-breaking past and present art works from all over the world each summer. The event, an initiative of the New South Wales Government, takes place over several months at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
Visitors get an exclusive peek at renowned works of art from European masters including Picasso, Matisse, and Kadinsky alongside numerous other international artists. Aside from the exhibits, guests can enjoy the pop-up bars, tours, talks, and performances. Creative workshops for all ages and abilities will also be available. Families attending the event can enjoy art making activities, free performances, and several family-friendly tours. Rarely-seen cinema classics, documentaries, experimental films, and shorts will be shown as well.
Entrance to most of the exhibits will be free, although some workshops and events will have a small cover charge. Art passes will also be available for certain events. Sydney International Art Series passes for both venues are available at a discount, starting at $42 for adults, $98 for families, and $34 for concession.
