SPRING 1883 Partnership 

We are thrilled to announce that Guest Work Agency is a proud partner of the Sydney 2017 iteration of SPRING 1883, which will return to The Establishment from 6 - 9 September 2017. SPRING 1883 is a young and exciting hotel-based art fair that draws on the traditions of the Gramercy Park Fair, New York to present the best of contemporary art practice from Australia, New Zealand and beyond. 

Through its intervention into a hotel’s context, SPRING 1883 sees the traditional art fair model replaced with a boutique site for dialogue and interaction between galleries, artists and collectors. Conceived by galleries for galleries, participation in SPRING1883 is through personal invitation, allowing the project to evolve out of shared conceptual engagements.
