The Biennale of Sydney is Australia's largest and most exciting international visual arts event. The 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire (21 March - 9 June 2014) is presented under the artistic direction of Juliana Engberg.
Our mission is to engage our audience with bold and innovative contemporary art from around the world, challenge the status quo, promote cultural exchange and inspire audiences to experience art, themselves and their world in new and creative ways.
The Biennale of Sydney is a non-profit organisation that presents Australia’s largest and most exciting contemporary visual arts festival. Held every two years, the Biennale is a 12-week exhibition, with an accompanying program of artist talks, performances, forums, guided tours, family days and other special events – all FREE to the public.
The Biennale of Sydney was the first biennale to be established in the Asia-Pacific region and, alongside the Venice and São Paulo biennales and documenta, is one of the longest running exhibitions of its kind.
Since its inception in 1973, the Biennale of Sydney has provided an international platform for innovative contemporary art, showcasing the work of nearly 1600 artists from over 100 countries.
Today it ranks as one of the leading international festivals of contemporary art in the world and continues to be recognised for presenting the freshest and most provocative art from Australia and around the world.
