Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10, 2015
everywhere all at once…here
Mildura Palimpsest Biennale (Australia) is a uniquely experiential program of contemporary interdisciplinary art, developed through site-specific residencies in the inland Mildura region of Australia. One of Australia’s premier contemporary art events, Mildura Palimpsest Biennale proudly expands on the experimental lineage that the Mildura Sculpture Triennials initiated 45 years ago.
Mildura Palimpsest Biennale is committed to exploring experimental new areas of contemporary art practice grounded in the particularities of our global region. Intercultural collaboration is inherently experimental in that it challenges hegemonic conceptions of contemporary art and provides a platform for art that re-examines the diversity of contemporaneity as the past and future present. Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10 is an experiential opportunity for artists & audience to merge; expanding contemporary discussion about global-intercultural identity through six International, durational & intercultural projects.
The theme of Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10: ‘everywhere all at once…here’ explores the nexus between ‘the virtual and the grounded’, contemporary intercultural site-specificity and the multiple realities of contemporary global culture. Walking as durational art practice is one key medium of intercultural exchange in Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10. Walking is a slow movement that brings us into the present time…here. Walking together provides significant new opportunities for intercultural dialogue and collaboration.
A symposia series Art is a time machine brings together world renowned artists and thinkers speaking on Working between the Virtual and the Grounded; Contemporary Intercultural Collaboration; Walking Together as Creative Practice; and Art as Material Philosophy; all in the context of global contemporaneity. The first four symposia are being presented at NGV International in the lead up to the biennale. The final two symposia in the series are presented at Mungo National Park and La Trobe University Mildura as part of the Biennale Opening Long Weekend 2 – 5 October 2015
Opportunities to meet and talk with the artists, speakers and provocateurs are available all weekend as artists travel with audiences on the art tour and dine with the audience each evening.
