(re)situate Biennale Delegates Program

A funded opportunity for early career individuals working in visual arts. Engage with the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Yokohama Triennale, and Venice Biennale 2024.

Biennale Delegates Program 2022, MCA.

About the program

The (re)situate Biennale Delegates Program is a professional development opportunity for early career individuals working in the visual arts industry (producers, technicians, writers, curators, artists, project managers) who are based in Australia or Aotearoa (New Zealand). The program will facilitate exchange of ideas, catalyse new perspectives, and support the seeding of future projects and collaborations.

Between February and April 2024, a total of 15 individuals living in either Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand), will connect with artists, producers and curators from Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art (face-to-face), Yokohama Triennale (online), and the Venice Biennale (face-to-face).

The (re)situate Program forms part of Australia’s participation in the Venice Biennale, extending development and engagement outcomes to the visual arts sector and providing critical exposure to contemporary visual arts practice in an international context. In line with Creative Australia’s International Engagement Strategy 2021-25 the program focusses on Australian practice with a borderless approach to international engagement.

The Biennale Delegates Program is delivered in partnership with Creative New Zealand, Yokohama Triennale and the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. It is made possible through co-investment from ArtsACT, Create NSW, Arts NT, Arts Queensland, Arts South Australia, Arts Tasmania and Creative Victoria and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries – Western Australia. Additional access support for successful applicants has been made possible through the generosity of the Cross Family Foundations.
