Sydney International Art Series

Bringing the world’s most outstanding exhibitions to Australia, exclusively to Sydney, every summer

The 2016-17 Sydney International Art Series will showcase two inspired exhibitions – Nude: art from the Tate collection (5 November 2016 – 5 February 2017) at the Art Gallery of NSW and Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything (3 November 2016 – 5 March 2017) at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA).

In a partnership between Tate, London and the Art Gallery of NSW, Nude: art from the Tate collection will present over 100 major representations of the nude, including paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Lucian Freud, Henri Matisse and Louise Bourgeois.

The MCA exhibition Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything is the first major survey by leading Japanese contemporary artist Tatsuo Miyajima. Known for his immersive and technologically-driven sculptures and installations, Miyajima draws inspiration from Buddhist philosophy, with its exploration of mortality and human cycles of death and renewal.

The Sydney International Art Series brings the world’s most outstanding exhibitions exclusively to Sydney, Australia. Created by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, the Sydney International Art Series is a signature event on the NSW Events Calendar.
