In 2013 Australia launched a new art fair. Ten years on, its inaugural Director, Barry Keldoulis is stepping down from the role.

Sydney Contemporary is a signature event of Arts Fairs Australia, launched in 2013. Its inaugural Director, Barry Keldoulis has been key in building the organisation’s growth – not only its terms of its national profile, but also its international reach. He is now stepping down from the role after a decade of leadership.
