Curated by guest curators Natalie King and Djon Mundine, this Biennial is the fourth iteration of a signature event on Australia’s national exhibition calendar.
Inaugurated in 2006 to identify new developments in contemporary art practice, the TarraWarra Biennial invites artists to present new work at the unique TarraWarra Museum of Art, located in the spectacular Yarra Valley one hour from Melbourne. The Biennial highlights pivotal aspects of Australian practice under an experimental curatorial platform.
Featuring recent and specially commissioned works by more than 20 of Australia’s most vital contemporary Aboriginal and non-Indigenous artists, and taking a line from the evocative song “Art Groupie” (1981) by singer Grace Jones, the title of this year’s Biennial, Whisper in my Mask, signals a wide-ranging exploration of masking and disguise.
