Melbourne Art Fair rescheduled

Fair moved to Feb 2021.

Words: Camilla Wagstaff

After careful consideration of COVID-19, consultation with industry and advice from the Victorian Government, Melbourne Art Foundation has made the decision to reschedule Melbourne Art Fair (planned for June 2020) to 4 to 7 February 2021.

With uncertainty surrounding future months and in light of recent developments here in Australia and overseas, the fair says its greatest concern and priority is for the health and well-being of its team, exhibiting galleries, artists and the wider community.

“Although this has been a very difficult decision to make, we feel very fortunate to work and exist in such a supportive visual arts community,” said the organisers in a statement. “With a compelling list of exhibiting galleries, exciting fair program and new works by artists already well underway, Melbourne Art Foundation will continue to plan with galleries, artists and partners to deliver our best fair yet, in February 2021.”
