Australia Venice Biennale 2009 PDF Print E-mail

The Venice Biennale is the oldest, and remains the most important, visual arts biennial event. Every two years Venice becomes the world stage and the Biennale the leading showcase for contemporary art.

Australia’s participation in the Venice Biennale 2009 is managed by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body.

Australia's official representation for the Venice Biennale 2009 includes artist Shaun Gladwell who presents his work MADDESTMAXIMVS at the Australian Pavilion in the Giardini.

Sydney-based Felicity Fenner is the curator of a group exhibition of early career artists. The exhibition entitled Once Removed, presents artists - Vernon Ah Kee, Ken Yonetani, and Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro - through a series of installations unified by themes of displacement, Indigenous and environmental issues.
