Bankstown Arts Centre is thrilled to announce the inaugural Bankstown Biennale in 2020. Entitled Symbiosis, the Biennale will bring together a broad range of artists of diverse backgrounds and practices, in one major event across multiple Bankstown venues. In 2020, the Biennale asks artists to examine recent crises impacting locally and globally. With the bushfires, Covid-19 and economic change, the Biennale invited artists to create artistic responses which actively facilitate individual, collective and civic responsibility for the planet’s sustainability. Symbiosis: Bankstown Biennale will feature the work of 20 artists, co-curated by Bankstown Art Centre Director Vandana Ram and independent artist/curator Heidi Axelsen. who are creating works ranging across multiple mediums including drawing, painting, installation, photography, sculpture and video.
