Wrong Way Time opened at the 56th International Art Exhibition, Venice Biennale in May and will close on 22 November 2015. Australia’s representation at the Venice Biennale began in 1954, and since then 36 distinguished contemporary visual arts have exhibited under the Australia banner.
Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body, proudly owns and manages the Australian Pavilion and Australia’s participation at the Venice Biennale.
In May 2015, the new Australian Pavilion opened at the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. This new elegant building represents an ambitious chapter for Australian art internationally, respecting the importance of Venice’s heritage and showcasing the best of Australian art and architecture for future generations on the international stage.
Since 1988, Australia has been one of only 29 countries with a permanent national pavilion located within in the Biennale’s prestigious Giardini. Australia is now the first country to redevelop and build a 21st century national pavilion.
