Words: Yasmine Masi

Two of Sydney’s inner-city contemporary art galleries, Nanda\Hobbs and Galerie pompom, have announced a collaborative initiative, Chippendale Contemporary, to celebrate and promote contemporary art. Both galleries are hosting a series of events and exhibition showcases over four days, inviting visitors to view new art collections and talk with high-profile art figures.

Chippendale is noted for being central Sydney’s major contemporary precinct, with numerous spaces and galleries cultivating its cutting-edge creative scene.

Chippendale Contemporary’s opening night is on Thursday 10 September. With the two galleries only three minutes away from each other, visitors can wander between them and check out the late-night viewings of new exhibitions.

Over the next three days at both galleries, visitors can get an exclusive look at current exhibitions, attend several panels featuring art collectors and artists, and finish on Sunday 13 September with a local tour of the streets of Chippendale, featuring the best spots for art and wine.

All events will adhere to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, with a maximum of 25 people allowed in each venue at any one time. Temperatures will be taken on arrival and hand sanitiser will be available at both galleries. Bookings for all events are essential.
