19th Biennale of Sydney

19th Biennale of Sydney

The Biennale of Sydney is Australia’s largest and most exciting contemporary visual arts festival. Held every two years across multiple venues in Sydney, the Biennale is a three-month exhibition, with an accompanying program of artist talks, performances, forums, guided tours, family days and other special events – all FREE to the public.

Under the artistic direction of Juliana Engberg, the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire (21 March – 9 June 2014) celebrates the artistic imagination as a spirited exploration of the world, seeking splendour and rapture in works that remain true to a greater, even sublime, visuality.

With a vibrant list of more than 90 artists from 31 countries, the much-anticipated festival includes numerous new works commissioned especially for the 19th Biennale of Sydney, as well works by artists including Douglas Gordon, Tacita Dean, Pipilotti Rist and Nathan Coley.

When: 21 March - 9 June 2014
Where: Art Gallery of New South Wales, Artspace, Carriageworks, Cockatoo Island & Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
