Art Month in Sydney is about much more than exhibitions – although there are certainly a lot of them; the program extends to talks, tours, open studios, performances, workshops and classes.

This year's Art Month sees the return of two popular annual features: the Collectors Space exhibition, which each year throws open the private collections of some of Sydney's most acquisitive art-lovers, and the Art At Night program, which throws precinct-wide parties combining performance, pop-up food and drink, and extended gallery hours. 

This year marks the ninth Art Month Sydney, which was started by gallerists and heavyweight art dealers Vasili Kaliman and Michael Reid in 2010 in response to the growing public interest in art. The artistic director for this year's line-up is writer and curator Kate Britton. Below are some of our highlights.

Art Month Sydney runs March 1-25. See our hit list of best art to see this month.

You'll find there's still lots of summery things to do in Sydney during the first month of autumn, including music events and theatre by the harbour.
