This VIP experience – part of the Guest Club’s signature Art Travel Tours – includes special access to the art fair, a visit to one of Australia’s best private collections of contemporary art and studio tours with Tom Polo and Nell.
Guest Club offers unrivaled and intimate access to artistic experiences in Australia. Founder Alana Kushnir describes it as “a gym membership for the arts scene.”
One week you might be treated to a private tour of a major exhibition at the NGV or MCA, the next to a one-time visit to an artist’s studio or a collector’s house. And one of the Guest Club’s best experiences is the Travel Tour, taking place this year at the Sydney Contemporary.
A ticket with Guest Club means you’ll be among the first to experience one of the most anticipated contemporary art events of the year. It includes exclusive access to Sydney Contemporary events and opening nights, as well as guided tours with the biennale’s curators, studio tours with Tom Polo and Nell – two of the country’s most in-demand contemporary artists – and a brunch and stash tour at the influential Sullivan + Strumpf Gallery, which represents many of Australia’s top artists.
A private home tour is also part of the deal – this year the home (and art collection) is owned by Amanda Love, founder and director of international consultancy LoveArt, whose collection includes Tracey Emin, Isaac Julien and Patricia Piccinini.
Along with the packed program, the $450 ticket price also includes an arrival goody bag, lunch, dinner and cocktails.
