Art Collector magazine is thrilled to be joining collectors, gallerists and artists at The Hotel Windsor in Melbourne tomorrow for the opening of Spring 1883 during Melbourne Art Week. Running from 17–21 August 2016, the fair promises to be an engaging celebration of international and local contemporary art.

With the cancellation of Melbourne Art Fair, Spring 1883 takes centre stage in it's third year. Each of the 27 participating galleries travels from Australia and abroad to occupy historical Victorian-era suites at The Windsor Hotel. Each suite is unique, providing an interesting framework to view contemporary art. Fair director told Art Collector, “we are more committed than ever to delivering an experience that is both rigorous and popular for gallerists, artists and visitors alike.”

This year the fair also launches its patron program. Members will be able to enjoy early access to the fair, curator-led tours and artist introductions. If you are attending the fair, be sure to pick up a free Special Edition Art Collector magazine to support what promises to be the best Spring 1883 to date.
