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 98 artists across six venues — the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Artspace, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Cockatoo Island, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and the National Art School.

14 Mar – 8 Jun 2020
