What To See At The Sydney Biennale
For the next few months, the 21st Biennale of Sydney will take over the city.
At the helm is curator Mami Katoaka, whose main gig is as chief curator at Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum. The major exhibition spans multiple locations across the Sydney, featuring the work of 70 artists and collectives from 35 countries responding to the theme ‘SUPERPOSITION: Equilibrium & Engagement’.
Since its inception in 1973, the Sydney Biennale has been known for its boundary-pushing exhibitions featuring major global artists. Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei is the headlining artist for this 21st iteration, with two major installations, a documentary screening and a keynote address centred around rights for refugees – or as he stresses – human rights.
We scoured the program (so you don’t have to!) to assemble this must-see list.
