Biennale Of Sydney


Biennale of Sydney is an artist led endeavour that brings together artists, makers, scientists, academics and thinkers from around the world.

Since its inception in 1973, the Biennale of Sydney has showcased the work of nearly 1,800 artists from more than 100 countries and holds an important place on both the national and international stage.

For the 2020 Biennale of Sydney, The Balnaves Foundation will support two events:

On the 250th anniversary of Cook’s landing, First Nations artists will take centre stage in Sydney Town Hall to debate the question, ‘To cook Cook or not?’
