Inaugurated in 2006, the TarraWarra Biennial has presented the works of almost 200 artists over the course of seven exhibitions to date. Providing a significant platform for each of its guest curators to identify and respond to new trends in contemporary Australian art, each iteration has had a distinctive and independent curatorial lens and provided a significant opportunity to commission and present new works by artist from across Australia.
This back-catalogue bundle features the richly illustrated exhibition catalogues published for each of the TarraWarra Biennials since 2008 including:
