BIENNALE OF SYDNEY 18 MARCH - 05 JUNE 2016

The 20th Biennale of Sydney will take place across seven venues or 'Embassies of Thought', and multiple 'in-between spaces' around inner Sydney. Artisitc Director Stephanie Rosenthal commented "The themes associated with each of these (Embassies of Thought) are inspired by the individual histories of each venue, whilst the ‘in between’ spaces speak to one of the key ideas in this Biennale exploring the distinction between the virtual and the physical worlds."
