22nd Biennale of Sydney to reopen with extended dates


As governments across Australia begin to ease restrictions, museums and galleries are stepping forward to announce reopening dates.

NIRIN, the 22nd Biennale of Sydney, will reopen from 16 June, with some venues opening from 1 June 2020.

Due to Covid-19, this year’s Biennale had to be closed to the public after only ten days. “Now, more than ever, we need art to connect, collaborate and heal – all core themes of NIRIN,” said Barbara Moore, Chief Executive Officer, Biennale of Sydney.

During the restriction period the Biennale of Sydney found new ways to reach more than 600,000 people through their digital programming. While NIRIN WIR — the Biennale’s program of public events — is postponed at this stage, their digital offerings will continue.

Exhibition dates at each venue are as follows:

Art Gallery of New South Wales 1 June – 27 September 2020

Artspace 1 June – 27 September 2020

Campbelltown Arts Centre 1 June – 11 October 2020

Cockatoo Island 16 June – 6 September 2020

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia 16 June – 6 September 2020
