National Art School announced as exhibition partner for 2020 Biennale of Sydney
News from Steven Alderton today “I am proud to announce we are an Exhibition Partner for NIRIN, Biennale of Sydney 2020 alongside Art Gallery of New South Wales, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Artspace Sydney, Campbelltown Arts Centre and Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour. Congratulations to Brook Andrew, Artistic Director and all of the 33 artists announced today.
“NIRIN is not a periphery, it is our centre, and it expresses dynamic existing and ancient practices that speak loudly. NIRIN decentres, challenges and transforms dominant narratives, such as the 2020 Captain Cook anniversary in Australia and reorients Western mapping, shining a light on sites of being that are often ignored or rendered invisible. NIRIN is an inspirational journey driven by stories and grass-roots practices, realised through twisting perceptions, moments of transition and a sense of being in the world that is interconnected.” – Brook Andrew
