Canberra Art Biennial
01/10/2022 - 29/10/2022
The 2022 edition sees the festival rebranded as Canberra Art Biennial and sees expansion to the National Arboretum (contour 656), the University of Canberra (contour 606) as well as maintaining and building further on our presence in North and South Canberra, centred on contour 556, the height above sea level of Lake Burley Griffin.
Contour 556 is the water level of Lake Burley Griffin, which links the event in name as well as in purpose to the history of the central Canberra landscape. The artworks and installations selected for the festival respond in some way to Canberra’s history, from 50,000 years to the present day. contour 556 will therefore offer the Canberra, Australian and international community a unique opportunity to engage with and understand the layers of Canberra’s history through art.
The event offers visitors a unique opportunity to engage with and understand the layers of Canberra’s history through art. Artists will be responding to the designed city of Canberra: represented by Australia’s political, cultural, and physical history.
