The 20th Biennale of Sydney, inspired by a quote from author William Gibson, is titled The future is already here—it’s just not evenly distributed. This edition will be presented at venues conceived by Stephanie Rosenthal as “embassies of thought.” An embassy traditionally functions as a state within a state: a host country characteristically allows the embassy control of a specific territory, a system that enables the occupation and creation of new spaces in other lands. Understood more as temporary settings rather than fixed locales—places as transient homes for constellations of thought—the embassies for the Biennale are: Embassy of the Real (Cockatoo Island); Embassy of Translation (Museum of Contemporary Art Australia); Embassy of Spirits (Art Gallery of New South Wales); Embassy of Non-Participation (Artspace); Embassy of Stanislaw Lem (a bookshop); Embassy of Transition (Mortuary Station), and Embassy of Disappearance (Carriageworks).
