Our mission is to support and promote contemporary art and Australian living artists
Melbourne Art Fair
The Melbourne Art Fair is an international contemporary art fair that takes place biennially during Melbourne Art Week. It is one of the most important platforms for promoting contemporary artists in Australia, attracting more than 20,000 collectors, curators, museum professionals and art enthusiasts.
Since 2006, the Commissions program has provided a living Australian artist with a significant opportunity to realise a large-scale work for unveiling at the Melbourne Art Fair. Previous artists include Michael Parekowhai, David Griggs, Peter Hennessey, Jon Campbell, Ian Burns, and Mikala Dwyer.
