10 galleries to watch at Sydney Contemporary

Gillian Serisier, Habitus Living, August 29, 2022

With Sydney Contemporary fast approaching, we asked art advocate Natalia Ottolenghi Bradshaw to share her top ten picks at the fair.


Art advocate extraordinaire, Natalia Ottolenghi Bradshaw is the Chair of the UNSW Galleries Advisory Board, Australian Museum Foundation Trustee, and Member UNSW Faculty Arts, Design and Architecture Advisory Council. Moreover, she is a highly regarded art advisor and collections manager with a known eye for the work of both established and emerging artists. Here she gives us a run-down on artworks and galleries to watch, all of which will be presented at the fair.


When commenting on her selections, Ottolenghi Bradshaw says, “Sydney Contemporary is actually my favourite art fair. Anywhere. It’s a rigorous celebration of our robust local visual arts ecosystem, one that is dynamic and of exceptional quality. It’s hard to pick just ten galleries amongst the many more participating in Sydney Contemporary – but these came to mind (listed alphabetically) – I deal with them often, know many of their artists personally, and know that these galleries look after their artists well. They also show ‘museum quality’ work that in the main is a requisite of what I look for, and certainly not an indication of price, as some works I’m visualising in this list are less than $3000.”
