The ‘Bunbury Biennale’ showcases cutting-edge contemporary art from Western Australia; and, as an acquisitive award exhibition, provides an opportunity for the City of Bunbury to secure new works to expand and diversify the existing City Art Collection. The 2021 iteration, for the first time in its 28-year history, invited artists to explore a theme: HE | SHE | THEY.
‘HE | SHE | THEY’ is a journey into gender identity with 37 WA artists exploring notions of inclusion and diversity, celebrating the heterogeneity of gender within Western Australian culture and community. Occupying the two largest exhibition spaces at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery, the ‘Bunbury Biennale’ 2021 will run from 6 March to 7 June, hosting an exciting program of events, artist talks and workshops – a fantastic opportunity to connect with the exhibition in new ways and learn from the artists themselves.
The official opening will be held on Saturday 6 March from 6pm and the ticketed Bunbury Biennale Hangover Breakfast the following morning at 10.30am.
Artists include Carla Adams, Vicki Ames, Benjamin Bannan, Nathan Beard, Christophe Canato, David Carson, Janet Carter, Olga Cironis, Elaine Clocherty, Penny Coss, Mel Dare, Annette Davis, Nikita Dunovits-Ferrier, Stuart Elliott, Tania Ferrier, Dan Gladden, Brent Harrison, Catherine Higham, Pablo Hughes, Sam Huxtable, Matthew Jackson, Elisa Markes-Young, Vahri McKenzie, Britt Mikkelsen, Andrew Nicholls, Ron Nyisztor, Annette Peterson, Lex Randolph, Rizzy, Susan Roux, Helen Seiver, Sue Starcken, Wade Taylor, Tony Windberg, Michael Wise, Gera Woltjer, and Christopher Young.
