24th Biennale of Sydney

Ten Thousand Suns
For the first time, the Chau Chak Wing Museum was an Exhibition Partner as part of the 24th Biennale of Sydney.

The 24th Biennale of Sydney works across time periods, beyond the borders separating cultural practices rooted in different genealogies, and from all continents. The exhibition owes a profound debt to the rich heritage of what is known today as Australia, especially to the struggles in which First Nations communities and migrants have faced and played key roles.

This edition revisits legacies of collective resistance, strength, and exuberance, embracing a more hopeful and joyful outlook, while celebrating the exhibition as a carnival of rays and radiance, aptly titled Ten Thousand Suns.
