The Biennale of Sydney is a non-profit organisation that presents Australia’s largest and most exciting contemporary visual arts festival. Held every two years, the Biennale is a three-month exhibition, with an accompanying program of artist talks, performances, forums, guided tours, family days and other special events.

Initiated by Founding Governor Franco Belgiorno-Nettis and supported by Founding Patrons Transfield Holdings, the first Biennale of Sydney was held in 1973 as part of the opening celebrations of the Sydney Opera House. The Biennale of Sydney was also the first biennale to be established in the Asia-Pacific region and, alongside the Venice and São Paulo biennales and documenta, is one of the longest running exhibitions of its kind.

Since its inception in 1973, the Biennale of Sydney has provided an international platform for innovative contemporary art, showcasing the work of nearly 1600 artists from over 100 countries.

Today it ranks as one of the leading international festivals of contemporary art in the world and continues to be recognised for showcasing the freshest and most provocative art from Australia and around the world.
