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. Presented by Carriageworks and the 19th Biennale of Sydney.
