Site responsive biennale crosses ocean and sky

The Fremantle Biennale has commissioned more young WA artists than ever before.

Now in its third iteration, the 2021 Fremantle Biennale is its most ambitious edition to date and shows deep-rooted engagement with a host of local artists, whose work excavates untold stories inspired by the Port city’s many spaces.

Fremantle Biennale co-founder and Artistic Director Tom Mùller explains that this year’s festival also marks a turning point, as it embraces a new programming model that departs from its previous, more conventional biennale design.
