What's On

Whats on in Sydney

Sydney is a beautiful city and a fantastic place to explore. With its eye-opening art, theatre and exhibitions, world class sporting events, amazing nightlife and cultural events, and stunning harbours and beaches, there is truly something for everyone.


Biennale of Sydney

Presented free to the public from 27 June until 16 September 2012, the Biennale of Sydney is Australia’s largest and most respected contemporary visual arts event, attracting more than half a million visitors in 2010.

Beginning with the two curators in dialogue, the curatorial premise “all our relations” provides a collaborative framework that allows conversations to extend to both artists and audiences. The collaboration between Artistic Directors Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster is the first time in the Biennale’s 39-year history that an exhibition has been developed by a curatorial duo.

Exploring new ideas from unexpected voices around the world, the 18th Biennale of Sydney showcases more than 220 works by over 100 artists hailing from Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific, the Americas, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East. Nearly half the artists have created works specifically for this exhibition, including many substantial collaborative installations.

Major venues for the 18th Biennale of Sydney are the Art Gallery of New South Wales; the newly redeveloped Museum of Contemporary Art Australia; World Heritage-listed former shipyard and prison, Cockatoo Island; and Pier 2/3 in Walsh Bay. For the first time, Redfern-based arts institution Carriageworks is a presenting partner.
