I am looking forward to participating in this year’s Bunbury Biennale exhibition ‘A Cultural Ecology’.
The biennale is a major West Australian contemporary art event with an acquisitive component. The 2023 Bunbury Biennale provides the theme Culture/Nature with the purpose of presenting a cohesive survey of WA contemporary arts practices.
Sweeping shifts in our environment, often the result of human activities, are disrupting norms around the world. Civilization as we know it is transitioning through a radical moment in history. While many may feel confounded by the larger threats posed by environmental change, artists, designers, and craftspeople are at the forefront of asking what our relationship to the environment is, has been, and could be, going forward.
For the first time ever this year’s Bunbury Biennale will feature additional exhibitions that capture the theme Culture / Nature.
