New First Nations Curatorial Fellow for Biennale

Tony Albert has been appointed as the inaugural Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain First Nations Curatorial Fellow.

While it has long included First Nations artists, the Biennale of Sydney over recent editions has made it a strong priority to profile Indigenous artists in this international platform for contemporary art. That has been extended this year, as the organisation prepares for its 2024 edition. Today (14 September) it has announced a new partnership with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and the creation of a new role – the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain First Nations Curatorial Fellow. Tony Albert (a Kuku Yalanji man) has been announced as the inaugural appointment.
