Sydney Lodges is excited to be a partner of NIRIN 22nd Biennale of Sydney 2020.
Many of the international artists have chosen to stay with us at Sydney Lodges Potts Point during the installation and exhibition. We have loved meeting them and feel very proud to be chosen as one of the accommodation partners of the event.
The Biennale of Sydney is one of the leading international contemporary art events in the world and is open again to the public from 1 June to 6 September 2020. 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.
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. Andrew says “In the year of the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s landing, art is an essential catalyst for change.”
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.
