Burrinja Climate Change Biennale
ART PRIZE – $3,000

Entries close10 August 2015

Burrinja invites you to enter the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale acquisitive art prize.
We encourage works that respond to themes of climate change both locally – in the Dandenong Ranges – and globally. Works may be across any visual arts medium.

The Biennale strives to elicit authentic, non-directed audience responses to art works and the ways in which they provoke responses and contribute to the critical debate and cultural conversations surrounding climate change.

The Biennale is an immersive and experiential exhibition incorporating direct and online audience responses and incorporating ongoing responsive art-making activities together with the exhibition.

This project is generously supported by a Shire of Yarra Ranges Council Arts and Heritage Development Grant.

Points of Focus:
Historic photographs from the Pacific


Historic photographs from the Pacific are the result of complex cross-cultural encounters; their stories are many and varied and unfold as we learn more about them.

Curated by University of Sydney, Macleay Museum’s Rebecca Conway, the exhibition explores how photographs shape our understanding of the past by examining aspects of Pacific history through the lenses of colonial government, missionary, scientific and commercial photographers.

Curator Talk Sunday 16 August at 2pm
With exhibition Curator
Rebecca Conway, the University of Sydney, Macleay Museum
