An assemblage of contemporary Australian visual artworks engaged with music, sound and voice

Past Exhibition

TarraWarra Biennial 2012

Sonic Spheres

The TarraWarra Biennial was inaugurated in 2006 as a signature exhibition to identify new developments in contemporary art practice. The first Biennial Parallel Lives: Australian Painting Today was held in 2006. The second Biennial, Lost & Found, An Archeology of the Present, was held in 2008. Both exhibitions were opened to coincide with the Melbourne Art Fair.

The TarraWarra Museum of Art presents the third iteration of its Biennial from 5 August to 9 December 2012. Entitled Sonic Spheres the exhibition presents an assemblage of artists who are engaged with sound, music, voice and performance. The exhibition includes drawings, musical scores, sculptures made from musical instruments, paintings and video. These works invite us to listen to art, to find new sounds and melodies. Many of the artists performed live with their art works during the opening weekend of the exhibition.

Artist performances will be held at 2pm on the first Sunday of the month through the duration of the exhibition.

This year, the biennial includes the work of 20 artists and one collaborative group: Robyn Backen, Lauren Brincat, Eugene Carchesio, The Donkey’s Tail, Marco Fusinato, Nathan Gray, David Haines & Joyce Hinterding (collaboration), Ross Manning, Dylan Martorell, Victor Meertens, Angelica Mesiti, Yukultji Napangati, James Newitt, Tom Nicholson with Andrew Byrne (collaboration), John Nixon, Sandra Selig, Christian Thompson, Ray James Tjangala and Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula.
