18th Biennale of Sydney: all our relations / by Anna Madeleine

Some photos from the 18th Biennale of Sydney media preview yesterday, which I attended on behalf of Art Almanac. Entitled 'all our relations' by artist directors Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster, the Biennale is on until September 16th across five venues – MCA, Cockatoo Island, Pier 2/3, AGNSW, and Carriageworks, and showcases some spectacular works.
