Spanning multiple venues from the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cockatoo Island and the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Biennale of Sydney embraces the city as physical space and cultural landscape. As sites to be celebrated, explored and culturally excavated, the exhibitions have become as much a celebration of how visitors experience Sydney as how audiences experience art.
