The highly anticipated Artbank Social Club returns on 19th November 2016 and is set to be bigger than ever with a brand new Artist Flea Market expected to attract record crowds.

Now in its fourth year, Artbank Social Club gives the wider public an exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes and gain access to the Artbank collection, one of the largest collections of Australian art in the world.

Discover over 5,000 artworks by Australia's most admired artists and brightest up and coming talent on site at the organisation's award-winning Waterloo headquarters.

Complementing the collection store is the Artist Flea Market initiative. This Australian first will see the gallery and public spaces transformed by over 30 contemporary Australian artists. The result will be a highly unique artists' marketplace that is part jumble sale, part open studio, a little bit left-of-field and a whole lot of fun!

The Artist Flea Market is a new take on the open studio concept and will give event-goers a rare glimpse into the artists' world. The space will be curated by Léuli Eshraghi (VIC), Kimberley Moulton (VIC), Anna May Kirk (NSW) and Miriam Kelly (NSW) and each participating artist will exhibit their work, display elements from their studio and offer items for sale or exchange at their bespoke market stall.

Adding to the festival atmosphere is a pop-up bar and garden party, plus Mexican street food by Cantina Movil and vintage vinyls will be spinning all day by Sydney's iconic Rolling Records truck shop. Whether or not you are an enthusiast, this annual event is sure to delight, entertain and inspire all who attend!

"For this year's event, we have also initiated the Artist Flea Market – an exciting new initiative that will see over 30 Australian artists transform Artbank Sydney's gallery and public spaces into an artists' bazaar full of unexpected surprises, experiences, items for sale and of course Australian art." said Director Tony Stephens.

"Importantly, the Artbank Social Club is for everyone, no matter how much or how little you may know about contemporary art. Come down and visit what I am sure will be a day like many haven't experienced before"."

The Artbank Social Club 2016 will take place on Saturday, 19th November at Artbank Sydney, 222 Young Street, Waterloo from 10am-4pm. The event is open to all members of the public and admission is FREE. RSVP at Facebook and Eventbrite today.
