The Biennale of Sydney in Australia has revealed the full artist list for its 2020 edition. Some 98 artists and collectives are lined up to participate in the exhibition, which is due to run next year from March 14 to June 8.
The focus of the show curated by Brook Andrew, a member of the Wiradjuri people, is the “unresolved past anxieties and hidden layers of the supernatural,” according to a statement. Its title is “NIRIN,” after the Wiradjuri word for “edge.”Andrew has previously stated that the title is meant to reference a de-centering that he hopes to achieve with a Biennial, which focuses in large part on indigenous artists and members of various diasporas.Among the indigenous artists lined up for the event are various members of First Nations hailing from areas near Sydney—Noŋgirrŋa Marawili (Darrpirra/Yirrkala) and S.J Norman (Wiradjuri) among them. There are also Native Americans included in the show, such as Nicholas Galanin (a citizen of the Sitka Tribe in Alaska who recently wrote for ARTnews about his decision to pull out of the Whitney Biennial in July) and Demian DinéYazhi´ (Navajo), who is participating alongside the activist initiative that he founded, R.I.S.E. Other artists include Arthur Jafa, who has said he will consider blackness in relation to Australia with his new work.The full artist list follows below.Adrift LabTony AlbertCharlotte AllinghamMaria Thereza AlvesLhola AmiraJoël AndrianomearisoaArTree NepalTarek AtouiSammy BalojiDenilson BaniwaBankstown Poetry SlamBE.Namila BensonSissel M BerghHuma BhabhaBlacktown Native InstitutionKarim BleusAnna BoghiguianMohamed BourouissaBreaking BreadEric Bridgeman and Haus YuriyalTania BrugueraVajiko ChachkhianiClub Ate: Justin Shoulder and Bhenji RaColectivo AylluVictoria Santa Cruz (1922–2014)Randy Lee CutlerJose DávilaDemian DinéYazhi´ and R.I.S.E.: Radical Indigenous Survivance & EmpowermentKarla DickensLéuli EshrãghiAndré EugèneFAFSWAGJes FanFirst Dog on the MoonBrian FuataFUNPARK CoalitionNicholas GalaninStuart Geddes and Trent WalterFátima Rodrigo GonzalesJosep Grau-Garriga (1929–2011)Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam RahmanianLawrence Abu HamdanAziz HazaraLily HibberdLucas Ihlein and Kim WilliamsIltja Ntjarra / Namatjira School of ArtArthur JafaHannah Catherine JonesAslaug Magdalena JuliussenEmily KarakaBronwyn KatzKylie KwongTarek LakhrissiBarbara McGradyIbrahim MahamaStone Kulimoe’anga MakaNoŋgirrŋa MarawiliTeresa MargollesMisheck MasamvuKatarina MatiasekMayunkikiJohn Miller and Elisapeta HetaJota MombaçaMostaff MuchawayaProf Sir Zanele MuholiThe Mulka ProjectMzRizkElicura Chihuailaf NahuelpánPaulo NazarethS.J NormanMusa N NxumaloManuel OcampoErkan ÖzgenParramatta Female FactoryTaqralik PartridgeRosana PaulinoLaure ProuvostPublic Redress SystemReading OceaniaLisa ReihanaAndrew RewaldShaheed / Witness / KashmirSTARTTS (NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors)Adrian StimsonAnders SunnaSuohpanterrorElle-Máijá TailfeathersLatai TaumoepeauTennant Creek BrioWarwick ThorntonKalisolaite ‘UhilaGina Athena UlysseAhmed UmarUnbound CollectiveKunmanara Williams (1952–2019)Luke Willis ThompsonPedro Wonaeamirri
