Contemporary art featured in galleries around the world will be on display at The Hotel Windsor this week, as part of the fifth annual Spring 1883. Returning to the iconic Spring Street venue in August, the free collaborative event is spread over the hotel's four floors and is part the Melbourne Art Fair.

Open to the public from noon until 7pm August 2 to 4, this year's event will boast art from more than two dozen galleries. Head in after 8pm on Friday, August 3, and join the artist party, where there'll be live music and a bar.

Among the international contingent you'll find work from Dutton gallery in New York and Wellington's {Suit}, while local players include Sydney's Roslyn Oxley9 and Alaska Projects, and Melbourne's Murray White Room.

The pieces on display promise to be similarly diverse, ranging from photography to ceramics to portraiture and more. In one room you may find In Bloom — Cecilia Fox's floral-themed artwork and flower installation — and in another, an inflatable installation by Cindy Sherman.
