The Artbank Social Club returns for another year of art, music, food and a brand new Artist Flea Market extravaganza!
Artbank's annual open day gives you the opportunity to go behind the scenes and gain access to one of the largest collections of Australian art in the world. Explore over 5,000 works in the collection store, by some of Australia’s most loved artists, as well as from the brightest emerging talent this country has to offer.
This year we’re also introducing the highly anticipated Artist Flea Market; an Australian first that will see the gallery and public spaces at Artbank transformed by over 30 contemporary artists from across Australia. It's a unique artists’ market that is part jumble sale, part open studio, a little bit left-of-field and a whole lot of fun.
When you hit art overload, take a break and help us see in summer at our pop-up garden party. Join us for Mexican street food from the Cantina Movil food truck, ice-cold drinks at our gold-coin donation bar and vintage tunes from the Rolling Records vinyl truck shop....plus giveaways, prizes and more.
It's going to be big! It’s free! And everyone is invited!
