Biennale of Sydney 16 March - 11 June 2018

BIENNALE OF SYDNEY 16 MARCH - 11 JUNE 2018

The 21st Biennale of Sydney will take place across seven venues around inner Sydney. Artistic Director Mami Kataoka, an internationally renowned curator, commented on the theme of the 21st Biennale "The participating artists in the 21st Biennale of Sydney have been chosen to offer a panoramic view of how opposing understandings and interpretations can come together in a state of 'equilibrium'. My hope is that their artworks will serve as a catalyst for thinking about these principles and concerns, taking one's own position in society as a starting point.
