The Biennale of Sydney is a renowned exhibition of international contemporary art, the third oldest biennial in the world after Venice and São Paulo. Situated across multiple sites in Sydney, over nearly half a century, the Biennale of Sydney has commissioned and presented exceptional works of art by more than 1,800 national and international artists from more than 100 countries including the work of 52 artists born or living in South-East Asia.

The Biennale of Sydney is committed to free access for all and serves people of all ages and cultures. In 2018, the 21st Biennale of Sydney attracted visitation of over 850,000. Independent research showed that 23% of visitors were international, 52% identified as culturally diverse, 20% speak a language other than English at home and 46% were aged under 35 years. This reflects the important place that the Biennale of Sydney holds in the life of Australia and in its engagement with the world.
