18th Biennale of Sydney unveiled

Posted June 27, 2012, by Molly Wiltshire-Bridle

With today marking the official unveiling of the 18th Biennale of Sydney, there’s never been a better time to tap into your inner artist.

Heralded as Australia’s largest and most respected contemporary visual arts event, this year’s curatorial premise centres on the concept of ‘all our relations’ – a fitting theme for the exhibition that will display the works of over 100 artists from across the globe.

Catherine de Zegher, event Co-Artistic Director, says ‘the 18th Biennale of Sydney connects absolutely local issues, the most intimate meanings of place and time, with great currents of art and thought that are linking lives as though in conversation’.

Encompassing cultural heritage and history with new media and creative collaborations, the Biennale presents a global perspective on art and its place in society.

With more than 220 artworks on display – many of which have been created specifically for the Biennale – there is much to see and do in this free showcase.

If, like de Zegher, you’re fuelled by a passion for the arts, then be sure to pay a visit to one of the many locations throughout Sydney playing host to this visual spectacle.

The 18th Biennale of Sydney runs from 27 June until 16 September 2012. For the full program calendar and venue map, visit the official event website.
