Lemonade visits the Biennale of Sydney

It was a thrill to visit White Bay Power Station in the early hours of Tuesday 7 March and to hear this years’ curators – Inti Guerrero and Cosmin CostinaČ™’ – vision for the show. Alongside media colleagues, classroom pals from a lifetime ago, innumerable artists and a lot of fancy camera gear, I visited 6 of the Biennale’s 7 venues. Over the following week, I revisited the Biennale at a slower pace and look forward to sharing my thoughts later this month.

Following last years’ international dispatch from Mexico, this coverage of the Biennale will be joined throughout the year with a number of internationally-penned letters from familiar Lemonade writers. I am so pleased that Lemonade continues to offer a home for Queensland-based perspectives, even as research, holidays, and job opportunities take local writers overseas.
