Art Melbourne: 4-8 August 2010

Get ready for an art blast!  For 4 days in August Melbourne will host the biggest art event in Australia; The Melbourne Art Fair, a bi-annual event where a selection of Australian and international galleries will feature their artists.  Also incorporated into the Art Fair are programs, forums and  awards (see below) which can be very informative.

There’s always a great discourse of opinions that co-incide with this event.  Some of it constructive, some of it cruel but nonetheless interesting to hear as it filters from the Carlton Exhibition Building and out into the streets, into Melbourne’s beloved cafe conversation, magazine reviews and internet chat sites.

The Art Fair is a great way to network as an artist, gallery director, dealer or collector as everyone in the art industry will go at least once to check out what’s on display, and lets face it, you have to go and see it to really form your own opinion about the whole event and it’s impact within the Melbourne’s art industry.

Enjoy!
