The Sydney Art Quartet is a virtuosic string quartet, giving electrifying performances that playfully sidestep routine, cliche and orthodoxy. We produce intimate, multi sensory works that shine fresh light on great music and the hearts and minds that created it. We collaborate with artists of every kind to bring the richest possible musical experiences to audiences of all backgrounds

Since 2015 the Sydney Art Quartet has hand-crafted over 100 performances alone and in partnership with some of this country’s most exciting and original creative minds and companies, including:

  • Saskia Havekes: floral curator, founder Grandiflora & Grandiflora Fragrance

  • Kate Denborough & Gerard Van Dyck: KAGE contemporary dance

  • Taryn Fiebig: principal soprano Opera Australia

  • Gary Heery: celebrity portrait photographer

  • Wendy Sharpe: Archibald award winning painter

  • David Wenham: distinguished Australian actor, star of Lion, 300 & Seachange

  • Erin Helyard: Artistic Director - Pinchgut Opera

The Sydney Art Quartet is the resident ensemble at the Yellow House Kings Cross, the former creative comune of Brett Whiteley, Peter Weir & Martin Sharpe. Artistic Director James Beck has drawn inspiration from this legacy, creating programs that explore the boundaries of intimate and experimental live performance.
