At Carriageworks from 13 to 16 September, this year’s events include engaging panel discussions, guided tours, educational workshops and an extensive VIP Program, including an exclusive preview on 12 September. The official opening on 13 September is the outset to four days filled with painting, sculpture, sound and ceramics, through to installation, video and performances. Highlights include Jean Dubuffet’s four-metre-high sculpture L’Incivil (1973/2014) and Patricia Piccinini’s The Field (2018) a vast landscape of genetically modified flowers re-imagined for the fair.
