The Biennale of Sydney has announced that Judith Wright will feature in this year’s exhibition ‘All Our Relations’ on Cockatoo Island. Wright will present a newly commissioned installation, The Journey, as well as three video works entitled The Stager (2008), The Gift (2008) and Desire (2010). Previously a dancer with the Australian ballet, Wright’s art reflects a strong influence of dance and movement. Her paintings, videos and installations explore the relationship between the body and its external influences, in both psychological and physical dimensions.
Wright’s work is also being displayed in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s exhibition, ‘Volume One: MCA Collection’ opening 29 March. Following an extensive redevelopment, the MCA will reopen bigger and better than ever, with a new floor that will permanently display the MCA collection.
The Biennale of Sydney: ’All Our Relations’ run from 27 June 27 to 16 September.
