A world of Art. HErE. Now.


welcome to the 18th Biennale of Sydney Since 1973, Sydney has hosted one of the world’s most respected and renowned festivals of contemporary art. The Biennale of Sydney continues to break new ground with each edition by introducing audiences to prescient ideas from around the globe, earning a reputation for exhibitions distinguished by their innovation and pioneering presentations of artworks. As we celebrate the organisation’s 39th anniversary, for the first time we present the vision of two Artistic Directors. Over the past two years, Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster have worked together to curate an exhibition that will engage audiences in new ways and on many levels, offering opportunities for visitors to be active participants in the creation of artworks and of meaning. The 18th Biennale of Sydney, entitled all our relations, offers audiences an inspiring combination of works by artists from all over the world in five beautiful spaces, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, iconic Pier 2/3, and World Heritage-listed Cockatoo Island. For the first time, the Biennale is collaborating with Redfern-based Carriageworks, a contemporary arts institution that will present two international dance performances and an art installation as part of the exhibition. Significantly, of more than 100 artists and collaborators from over 40 countries, nearly half the artists in the 18th Biennale of Sydney have created new works specifically for all our relations, including many substantial collaborative installations. Many works are interactive, others require direct engagement with artists and still others will have artists performing throughout the entire course of the Biennale. Once again, we continue our strong tradition of presenting works in alternative spaces, which take the audience’s experiences of art

out of the traditional museum and gallery spaces and into special environments. For the seventh time since 1986, the 18th exhibition will use Pier 2/3 to present works best experienced in the cavernous expanses of this waterfront pier. The legendary Cockatoo Island returns for a third time – an island in the middle of Sydney Harbour that has by turns been a convict prison and a dockyard for shipbuilding and repair. Once again, we have made it easy for you to reach Cockatoo Island. Throughout the exhibition (27 June – 16 September) there is a Biennale Free Ferry service for the short trip, generously supported by The Balnaves Foundation. (See the ferry transport information on pages 38–39.) The Biennale of Sydney exhibition and public programs are also presented free, thanks to the generous support of our partners, and grants from Australian and foreign governments, in addition to a network of visionary sponsors, benefactors and supporters. Be sure not to miss unique opportunities to hear artists speak about their works and ideas during the opening week, as well as regular public events, talks and tours throughout the exhibition. We encourage you to take the Vittoria Biennale Art Walk (see the map on page 10). Most venues are open seven days a week and are within easy walking distance of each other. For updates on Biennale artists, special events, public transport tips or how to book for a Mystery Tour on Cockatoo Island, please visit bos18.com on your desktop or mobile device. We extend boundless thanks to the artists for their extraordinary vision, generosity and creativity, and we hope that visitors to the exhibition will be inspired to experience the world with a reinvigorated perspective as they immerse themselves in the many possibilities of all our relations.

all our relations We are moving on from a century in which the radical in the arts largely adopted principles of separation, negativity and disruption as strategies of change. Based on oppositional thinking, such modernist principles proved tenacious and acted as a default criticality in a world in which the drive to progress became more complicated and the consequences more ambiguous.

All oUr rElAtIoNS

A changing reality is apparent in a renewed attention to how things connect – how we relate to each other and to the world we inhabit. Art is a part of this growing awareness. Where once there was an emphasis on alienation and distance, there are now concurrent shifts of thinking that are informing the work of artists and writers across the world. These shifts – incipient and partly unformed – are only now beginning to be acknowledged, but are of real significance.

all our r ela tio ns

In the arts, as elsewhere, analytical reflection has led to an understanding that human beings are highly dependent upon our often overlooked relationships with others and with our common world. While this connective model is still embedded in a few societies, established western cultural patterns have tended to emphasise the fragmentation and isolation of the individual. As a result, there are relatively few remaining models of participatory forms of perception and sensibility. A reciprocal relation calls for a profound re-evaluation and the development of new models of working together within our changing reality. One of the things that art can do is to allow us a space for such attention – for thinking together that is open-ended. The 18th Biennale of Sydney focuses on inclusionary practices of generative thinking, such as collaboration, conversation and compassion, in the face of coercion and destruction. With the creation of conditions for an encounter in consonance with our surrounding world, this event brings emphasis to what is already happening at large. Drawing on the possibility of the present, the Biennale emerges from the engagement of all participants by using a model that begins with two curators in dialogue. This matrix of conversation extends to both artists and audiences in a multi-vocal correspondence.

all our relations relies on these various exchanges, affinities and empathies as its dynamic structure, the vascular and cellular structure and sinew of a kind of living, breathing organism, from which the Biennale’s meanings grow. Artists work in a context that allows for mutual recognition and audiences from differing backgrounds are part of this continual development, finding their own direction in these connections. It is in this altered attention to one another, in the meeting and making of ideas together, that constructive consequence can follow. In seeking conjunctive energies, this collaboration has taken place on many different levels: in co-existence, conversation and juxtaposition but also in purposeful connectivity. Within this framework of mutuality, recognition and thoughtfulness, disparate ideas – some distantly and some closely related – are brought together in an exhibition process of composition; much akin to the process of thought itself. Artists, who can often feel isolated in their practice, come together with neighbouring artists. Rather than one work appearing to link to one or two other works, an attunement between all creative impulses takes place in time. Projects correspond as if evolving from each other and progress through the sequence of venues and buildings. This interconnection and interdependency occurs in the knowledge that audiences will take elements from the exhibition and connect them with their own experiences. In this shared space, the meaning and consequence of the artists’ works is engendered. all our relations has its roots in storytelling as it is currently being re-imagined, as a coming-into-being in relation. In the reciprocity that is storytelling, both teller and listener inhabit the space of the story. Telling stories connects us and allows us to care, to be: it fosters collaboration; it aggregates knowledge and generates new ideas; it ignites change; and, ultimately, it builds community. In this matrix, the different projects can be compared to a set of storylines, which artists, curators and audiences relate and translate. Through this process, a collective composition or new Gesamtkunstwerk is accomplished in the active generation of meanings realised by all those who take part, each taking their stories home and beyond ...

MUSEUM of CoNtEMPorArY Art AUStrAlIA Possible Composition

In Possible Composition artists made works by bringing together disparate elements, or reassembling disjointed parts, to create a new heterogeneous whole from what was broken and scattered. where there has been separation and fragmentation in all aspects of life, there is now a profound desire for composing and recomposing together – an aesthetic co-composition paralleling the need for collaborative and meaningful solutions in today’s world. Levels 1 and 3 140 George Street, The Rocks (Entry via Circular Quay West or George Street) Open daily 10 am–5 pm Thursdays until 9pm (02) 9245 2400 mca.com.au

En Atendant Tuesday, 11 and Wednesday, 12 September

Cesena Friday, 14 and Saturday, 15 September

In En Atendant (2010–12), a collaboration with Michel François, Bart Coen and his ensemble Cour et Coeur, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is taking a new step in her exploration of the combination of music and dance. Here her starting point is the ars subtilior – a complex and intellectual form of polyphonic music from the fourteenth century that is based on dissonance and contrast. Ars subtilior developed on the ruins of the plague and the Church at a time when the social, political and religious pillars of mediaeval society were fragmenting. Nowadays this upheaval seems more relevant than ever. In the light of today’s increasingly confusing events and the complexity of the choices we face, the question of our mortality and physicality is becoming ever more crucial.

For Cesena (2011–12), De Keersmaeker and Rosas worked closely with Björn Schmelzer and his graindelavoix ensemble. This new production might almost be called the counterpart to its predecessor, En Atendant, with this piece heralding the start of the day. The stage is shared by 19 dancers and singers who explore the limits of their ability. Dancers sing and singers dance, once again in dialogue with the wilful scores of ars subtilior. For the third time, Ann Veronica Janssens has collaborated with Rosas on set design, providing a sculpture of passing time, of the constant transformation of what is around us and of what only becomes visible in the course of time. The start of a new day, or a newlook at a distant past.
