When: 14 March to 8 June 2020

Sydney Lodges is a proud accommodation partner for the 2020 Biennale of Sydney.

The Biennale of Sydney is one of the leading international contemporary art events in the world.

Originating in Venice in 1973, the Biennale has showcased unforgettable artworks by more than 1,800 artists from 100 countries every 2 years. It connects local communities and global networks through its ever expanding exhibitions; providing free art and thinking for all to enjoy.

22nd Biennale of Sydney (2020) will be an artist and First Nations-led endeavour

The 22nd Biennale of Sydney will be open free to the public from 14 March to 8 June 2020. Venues include the Art Gallery of NSW, Artspace, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Cockatoo Island, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and the National Art School. 


Brook Andrew, Artistic Director of the exhibition, has entitled this year’s event NIRIN. Meaning edge, NIRIN is a word of Brook’s mother’s Nation, the Wiradjuri people of western New South Wales.

The Biennale of Sydney is an artist and First Nation-led endeavour that will bring together artists, makers, scientists, academics and thinkers from around the world. They will deliver artworks, insights, ideas and projects that challenge, share Indigenous knowledge, disrupt conventional notions, and reimagine the role of the arts. 

 Andrew says“In the year of the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s landing, art is an essential catalyst for change.”

Take a few days to explore as each visit to NIRIN will be a new and different experience. The innovative and collaborative works will bring together people from across the city, state, country and beyond.  

Many of the international artists are choosing to stay with us at Sydney Lodges Potts point during the exhibition. We are so looking forward to meeting them and feel very proud to be chosen as one of the four Sydney Biennale accommodation providers for the event.
