“The Venice Biennale is a crucial platform for Australian artists to present ambitious and ground-breaking contemporary art that represents the richness and diversity of Australia’s cultural expression.
“The enduring success of Australia at the Venice project is a testament to the dedicated support of a remarkable group of philanthropic, corporate and government partners who are committed to showcasing contemporary Australian visual arts globally.”
The successful artistic team will be announced in early 2023 and selected based on the advice of a panel of independent industry advisors including national and international visual arts experts.
