Wednesday 11 March, 1–2pm, Commencing from NAS Gallery
The 22nd Biennale of Sydney is an expansive artist and First Nations-led exhibition of contemporary art that connects local communities and global networks. Brook Andrew, one of Australia’s most distinguished artists, is artistic director of NIRIN. Meaning ‘edge’, nirin is a word of Brook’s mother’s Nation, the Wiradjuri people of western New South Wales.
NIRIN brings together artists, makers, scientists, academics and thinkers from around the world. They will deliver artworks, insights, ideas and projects that challenge dominant narratives and share Indigenous knowledge. NIRIN comprises work by over 100 artists across six venues — the National Art School, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Artspace, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Cockatoo Island and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
