Craving some culture? These are the best art exhibitions in Sydney.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that we think Sydney is great. We've got great stunning beauty, killer café culture and, slowly but surely, Sydney's nightlife is reemerging. Beyond the bars and beaches, we also have a thriving artistic and cultural scene and our art galleries and museums are among the best in the world!

Whether you're looking for a fun rainy day activity or to support local artists, these are the best art exhibitions in Sydney to check out in 2024.

Known as one of the great innovators of modern Art, Vasily Kandinsky's work has arrived at the Art Gallery of NSW. The exhibition is the largest presentation of Kandinsky's work ever seen in Australia and traces his life from his humble beginnings in Munich to his final chapter in Paris. Curated with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, this is a one-off not to be missed art event.

Louise Bourgeois 

Louise Bourgeois: Has The Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day? has taken over the Art Gallery of NSW in the very best way. The two contrasting exhibit spaces represent 'Day' and 'Night' respectively with the works expertly depicting the complexity of human relationships. Don't miss this opportunity to view this exhibition, one of the most extensive ever curated in relation to a single international woman artist in Australia. You'll have the opportunity to view multiple works that have never been displayed in Australia, including The Destruction of the Father 1974 and Crouching Spider 2003. 

Sitchu Tip: We recommend joining one of the guided tours to delve even deeper into the life, times and works of Louise Bourgeois. 

Tickets from $30, available here 

Until 28th April 2024 

Art Gallery of New South Wales 

A Blueprint For Ruins

A Blueprint For Ruins

White Rabbit may not be the largest gallery in Sydney but is has a well-established reputation for engaging and thought-provoking exhibitions. They've kicked off the first half of 2024 with something pretty special. A Blueprint For Ruins explores the violence that underlies the apparent perfection of progress. Depicting the Chinese buildings and spaces that are being rapidly removed in a race for renewal, the exhibit prompts viewers to wonder what progress means in an age of 'development'. 

Free admission 

Until 12th May 2024 

White Rabbit Gallery, 30 Balfour Street, Chippendale
