Australia’s largest and most exciting contemporary art event has announced the curatorial vision and first set of artists for its 24th edition. Titled Ten Thousand Suns, the Biennale of Sydney will open to the public from March 9 to June 10, 2024, across a number of locations in Sydney. The festival is held every two years and is completely free to explore. Led by Artistic Directors Cosmin Costinaș and Inti Guerrero, the 24th Biennale of Sydney proposes celebration as both a method and a source of joy, produced in common and broadly shared.
Biennale of Sydney, 2024
One of the highlights for 2024 is a program of contemporary music which is set to be presented alongside the exhibition and complement the artworks on display.
“Next year’s Biennale works across time periods, beyond the borders separating cultural practices rooted in different genealogies, and from all continents. The exhibition owes a profound debt to the rich heritage of what is known today as Australia, especially to the struggles and practices in which First Nations communities and migrants have faced and played key roles,” Costinaș and Guerrero said in a statement.
The full 24th Biennale of Sydney program will drop later this year along with locations and the full line-up of participating artists. In the meantime, thirty-nine of the Biennale’s participating artists have been announced including Adebunmi Gbadebo, Alberto Pitta, Citra Sasmita, Doreen Chapman, Elyas Alavi, Freddy Mamani, Marie-Claire Messouma Manlanbien and Kirtika Kain.
