Sydney Biennale: Reflecting a changing society

Artistic Director Mami Kataoka says her choices of exhibiting artists for this edition of Australia's most well-known art event, will reflect the modern multicultural city.

    The 21st Biennale of Sydney will, for the first time, have an artistic director from Asia.

    Japanese curator Mami Kataoka says her choices of artists and art - exploring the curatorial theme of Superposition: Equilibrium and Engagement - will reflect the modern multicultural city.

    The work of 70 artists and collectives from Australia and around the world will be presented at this year's three-month contemporary art event set open to the public this Friday, March 16.
