From the vibrant paintings of Henri Matisse to the immersive installations of Doug Aitken, the Sydney International Art Series (SIAS) will make a grand return in 2021.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said it was fantastic news for Sydney as the SIAS had always been a big drawcard for visitors.

“Since its inception in 2010, the Sydney International Art Series has generated more than $167 million in overnight visitor expenditure for the state and attracted more than 2.5 million attendees, with over 229,000 overnight visitors coming specifically to Sydney to view the exhibitions,” Mr Ayres said.

“While this year’s series was cancelled due to COVID-19, we are delighted it will be returning with two exceptional exhibitions: Doug Aitken: New Era at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, and Matisse: Life and Spirit, Masterpieces from the Centre Pompidou, Paris at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

“Securing these coveted exhibitions reaffirms the NSW Government’s commitment to delivering world-class events for our state which play an important role in encouraging people to visit Sydney and growing the NSW visitor economy.”
