Feature Artist – Spotlight on George Tjungurrayi

One of Australia’s leading and most respected artists, Tjungurrayi’s iconic paintings cross cultural boundaries and capture his passion and understanding of the land and serpent dreaming.

Tjungurrayi is one of 70 artists participating in the 21st Biennale of Sydney, with this works a feature installation in Carriageworks, one of the seven venues of the Biennale. Superposition: Equilibrium and Engagement, the theme of the 21st Biennale of Sydney, runs from 16 March through 11 June 2018 at the Art Gallery of NSW, Artspace, Carriageworks, Cockatoo Island, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Sydney Opera House, and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.  The theme title of the Biennale refers to a quantum physics term that points to how were are all linked on this earth and that opposing views may come together in a state of equilibrium – perfectly referencing Tjungurrayi’s bridging cross-cultural boundaries.
