Seven key artists from South-East Asia will be included in the 20th Biennale of Sydney titled ‘The Future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed’ and curated by Dr Stephanie Rosenthal. Korakrit Arunanondchai and Apichatpong Weerasethakul (both from Thailand), Heman Chong, Charles Lim, Ming Wong and Robert Zhao Renhui (Singapore), and Rodel Tapaya (Philippines) will exhibit in 2016. Each of these artists, with the exception of Ming Wong, will create new works for the exhibition, which will be open Friday, 18 March – Sunday, 5 June 2016 across Sydney museum and non-museum venues.
The Biennale of Sydney is a non-profit organisation that presents Australia’s largest contemporary visual arts festival. Held every two years, the Biennale is a three-month exhibition, open for free to the public, with accompanying public engagement and education programs, as well as publications and digital content. The Biennale is the largest and longest-running event of its type in our region and was the first to focus on Asian contemporary art in the 1973 and 1976 editions.
