I’m endlessly searching for blogs that reflect what’s going in the Australian art scene – and it’s always hard to find them. So just a quick roundup of places I go to find exhibition openings, and bit of chitter chatter.
Any suggestions are more than welcome!
The Art Life – reviews, commentary and bits and pieces from around Sydney (mainly). I like their New Work Fridays when artists send in stuff they are working on/ about to exhibit. They also have a list of art media and publications online
Das Platforms – they will even seen you a monthly print version!
Strobed – who where around a fair bit for a year, but seem to have dropped off lately, although I did spot one out and about at an opening recently. They do a Facebook-generated exhibition calendar by inviting them to yr event and it auto-generates to their openings calendar.
Six to eight– local openings around Sydney, and lately up the blue mountains and up the coast! Often does a quick video which if you can’t make it to a show helps visualise the work in the space.
The Countess – cause women count in the art world (i love this, from my sheer love of data and my sense of righteous indignation all rolled into one). CoUNTess is a blog that presents data and reviews on gender representation in the Australian Contemporary art-world.

It’s not nearly as serious as the sites you mentioned, but I’d not so humble suggest you check out the Big Lamington. Now in its 5th year!
Have checked it out – thanks for the heads up. Maybe see you at a gallery opening sometime 🙂
