Sydney International Art Series
For the 2023/2024 iteration of the Sydney International Art Series, the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) are presenting exhibitions featuring Louise Bourgeois, Vasily Kandinsky and Tacita Dean. Complemented by exciting public programs, these Sydney-exclusive exhibitions offer audiences the chance to be immersed in the expansive work of these influential artists. Kandinsky, in the original South Building of the AGNSW, is drawn from the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Showcasing the life and work of the artist known for exploring the transcendent potential of abstract art, it focuses on colour, line and form. Also at the AGNSW but in the new SANAA-designed building’s major gallery and the Tank, Louise Bourgeois: Has the Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day? is the largest survey of pioneering artist Louise Bourgeois ever shown in Australia, covering over seven decades and more than 150 works. Tacita Dean’s solo exhibition at MCA is the largest in-depth presentation of the artist’s work in the southern hemisphere, bringing together important artworks largely created in the last five years – including new and recent films, monumental drawings and installations that convey Dean’s extraordinarily beautiful investigations into chance, memory, entropy, history and the passing of time. In a Summer Series special, AGNSW and MCA are offering an Artpass allowing visitors access to all three exhibitions at a competitive price. Kandinsky shows from November 4, 2023 to March 10, 2024, Louise Bourgeois from November 25, 2023 to 28 April 28, 2024 and Tacita Dean from December 8, 2023 to March 3, 2024.
