24th Biennale of Sydney 2024

Sat 9th March, 2024 – Mon 10th June, 2024
Various locations, Sydney NSW
Sydney’s most iconic cultural institutions join forces for this jam-packed edition of the Biennale, themed Ten Thousand Suns.

From Saturday March 9 to Monday June 10, Biennale of Sydney opens for its 24th edition, showcasing visionary creations by artists from across Australia and all over the world.

Titled Ten Thousand Suns, the 24th Biennale of Sydney is led by artistic directors Cosmin Costinas and Inti Guerrero. Their vision for this year’s edition centres on celebration, joy, queer resistance and togetherness in the face of injustice.

Across the three months, the Biennale brings to life six iconic locations around Sydney. With exhibitions and works at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Chau Chak Wing Museum at the University of Sydney, UNSW Galleries and Artspace, this year’s Biennale also marks the first time in more than a century that the heritage-listed White Bay Power Station will be open to the public, following nearly $100 million in renovations.

In addition to those six locations, the Sydney Opera House will light up each night for the duration of the Biennale with Badu Gili: Celestial, a projection exploring the rich storylines of First Nations ancient celestial navigation practices.

At the centre of the music offering is Phoenix Central Park, in a partnership with the Biennale, which will see a program of live shows hosted at White Bay Power Station.

Elsewhere, there’s a packed line-up of artist talks, panels, performances and workshops, as well as Family Days, catering to Biennale-goers of all ages. For night-time experiences, check out the Art After Dark series on Wednesday nights.

As always, entry to the Biennale of Sydney is free, with some free and paid ticketed events. Browse the full program.
