“It is a global movement of art and thought that has been under the radar and now emerges as radical and dynamic…” ~ Co-Artistic Director Catherine de Zegher.
Presenting an expansive collection of contemporary art from more than one-hundred of the world’s esteemed artists, the 18th Biennale of Sydney invites audiences to connect, emphasize, and engage in Australia’s largest contemporary visual arts event. With works such as Thai artist Nipan Oranniwesna’s maps of ten different metropolises in ‘City of Ghost’(20007), the Biennale zooms in on the state of the world and drives towards change. Titled ‘All Our Relations’ and hosted by high profile museums Art Gallery of New South Wales and Museum of Contemporary Art and other venues, it will be presented free to the public from 27 June until 16 September 2012. Celebrating their 39th anniversary, the Biennale of Sydney welcomes for the first time Carriageworks as their presenting partner. This collaboration will be explored through a series of contemporary dance performances debuting from September 11th to the 15th.
Since its inception in 1973, the Biennale has been an international platform for innovative art and storytelling.
“Telling stories connects us…it aggregates knowledge and generates new ideas; it ignites change; and, ultimately, builds community…taking their stories home and beyond…”
