The Biennale of Sydney is a leading international contemporary art event. It plays an indispensable role in Australia’s engagement with the world, and a meaningful role in the life of the nation. For almost 50 years, the Biennale has been a unifying force in the Australian arts sector, embedding boldly creative art exhibitions and experiences in the everyday life of Sydney and putting the artistic excellence of Australia front and centre on the world stage.
The 22nd Biennale ‘NIRIN’ was a first nations led exhibition that launched in March 2020 in the peak of Covid. We were able to quickly pivot with the team to be able to turn what is normally a physical event into a virtual event, experienced by unprecedented audience numbers.
