Bunbury Biennale 2017
July 8 @ 10:00 am - September 10 @ 4:00 pm
The Bunbury Biennale is a juried exhibition which brings together works by contemporary artists from across Western Australia. Featuring some of the state’s most respected visual arts practitioners, alongside emerging and mid-career artists it is a chance for regional audiences to experience the diversity of contemporary arts practice in the west.
This year, the 13th Bunbury Biennale continues to celebrate the diverse identities of WA based artists and showcases contemporary visual arts practice across a range of media, from sculpture and installation to painting, drawing and printmaking.
The Bunbury Biennale was initiated by the City of Bunbury Arty Collection Committee in 1993 – it is the second oldest Biennale event in Australia. It was created in order to expand and diversify the existing city of Bunbury Art Collection which is the largest public art collection in the state, outside of the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
