The Australian Art Quartet entrances audiences with performances that playfully sidestep routine, cliche and orthodoxy.

Founded by James Beck (cello, artistic director) & Dan Russell (violin), the group works with distinguished guests to unite great quartet music with a wider world of arts and sciences including scent, botany, social history, architecture, painting, performance art, cuisine, fine wine, dance & multi-discipline installations.

The AAQ's 2016 debut at the historic Yellow House Potts Point demonstrated the appeal of their unique approach, playing to capacity houses and garnering media interest with a following described as the ‘envy of the arts scene'.

In 2017 the AAQ returns with a program that delivers the quality & diversity of an international arts festival, in the intimacy of a 90 seat performance space. Guest artists include KAGE Physical Theatre, Saskia Havekes (floral curator and founder of Grandiflora), Taryn Fiebig (soprano & cellist), Andrew Batt-Rawden (composer) Tony Assness (event director and theatre designer), Alan Jones (painter) and Chris Morrison (sommelier).
