Biennale of Sydney - Sydney


Date to be confirmed


Under the artistic direction of Juliana Engberg, the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire, 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.

In addition to the Art Gallery of NSW and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), venues for the 19th Biennale include two heritage-listed locations: Carriageworks, a former rail yard; and Cockatoo Island, a former prison and shipyard in Sydney Harbour. The 19th Biennale will also present works at Artspace and include several performative projects in Sydney's CBD.

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, forums, guided tours and family days - all free to the public.
