The Biennale of Sydney is Australiaâ€™s largest contemporary visual arts event, showcasing bold and innovative contemporary art from around the world. The free exhibition is presented over 12 weeks in the heart of Sydney at leading contemporary art spaces and on world heritage-listed Cockatoo Island. Alongside the exhibition, the Biennale presents artist talks, guided tours, performances, forums, family days and other special events â€“ all free to the public.
The 18th Biennale of Sydney: all our relations (27 June â€“ 16 September 2012) is based on a collaborative framework and dynamic new exhibition model. Artistic Directors Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster will bring together international artists to collaborate and create artworks, exploring new ideas from unexpected voices around the world.
Biennale of Sydney venues are connected by a spectacular art walk on Sydneyâ€™s Harbour. Start at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and stroll through the picturesque Royal Botanic Gardens to arrive at the newly redeveloped Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in the heart of bustling Circular Quay. Continue on to historic Pier 2/3 then jump on the Biennale Free Ferry across Sydney Harbour to world heritage-listed Cockatoo Island, a former shipyard and prison.
