5 August 2012 - 9 December 2012

An assemblage of contemporary Australian visual artworks engaged with music, sound and voice.
Curator: Victoria Lynn
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 will present 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 will include 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 will perform live with their art works during the opening weekend of the exhibition. This year, the biennial will include 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.
