19TH BIENNALE OF SYDNEY: YOU IMAGINE WHAT YOU DESIRE

19TH BIENNALE OF SYDNEY: YOU IMAGINE WHAT YOU DESIRE

In 2014 Carriageworks is a Major Venue Partner for the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire. Under the artistic direction of Juliana Engberg, the Biennale celebrates the artistic imagination as a spirited exploration of the world, seeking splendour and rapture in works that remains true to a greater visuality. At Carriageworks, a series of major works will explore the language, materials and narratives of the theatre and film worlds from which contemporary artists take inspiration for reinvention. Artists will include Broersen & Lukács, Joost Conijn, Henry Coombes, Nir Evron, Søren Thilo Funder, Bodil Furu, Ane Hjort Guttu, Hadley+Maxwell, Siri Hermansen, Agnieszka Kalinowska, Gabriel Lester, Norman Leto, Ann Lislegaard, Renzo Martens, Daniel McKewen, Laurent Montaron, Tinka Pittoors, Mathias Poledna, Ann-Sofi Sidén and Jonathan Bepler, Charlie Sofo, and Anna Touri.

Carriageworks and the Biennale of Sydney will also co-present the world premiere of a new work by celebrated British artist Tacita Dean. Dean emerged in London in the 1990s as part of the prominent generation of Young British Artists, with work that stood out for its formal elegance and intellectual rigour. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998, and her work has been shown at institutions worldwide, including New York’s New Museum and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Tate Modern, London; Schaulager, Basel; and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid.
