Contemporary Art 101
A beginners guide to Contemporary Art...

What is this artwork really about?
I want to start collecting art but don’t know where to begin?
What can I buy for under $1,000?
I just don’t get it, what is video art?
Can I reserve an artwork while I make up my mind and how does that work?

The artwork I like has sold, can I commission the artist?
Am I allowed to ask about paying artworks off in instalments?

Join us every Saturday at 11am for an informal discussion and tour of our current exhibitions and the chance to ask one of our Curators each and every question you’ve ever had when it comes to the basics of Contemporary Art!

Together we will demystify the world of contemporary art and…

* Take a guided tour through our current exhibitions.

* Discuss the rising role and impact of the internet, online sales and art fairs (and how to navigate them as an aspiring or emerging art collector!)

* Cover the basics you need to know on new and experimental medias such as video art, new media art and installation.

* And of course, discuss and answer any questions you have on acquiring and collecting contemporary art!

When: Every Saturday morning from 11-11.30am
Where: Artereal Gallery, 747 Darling St, Rozelle
Cost: Free! Children and babies welcome!
