17 July 2012 | Twenty artists have been selected to show in the Tarrawarra Biennial in Victoria, which opens in August.

Curated by Victoria Lynn, the biennial features the work of younger artists like Lauren Brincat, Ross Manning, Angelica Mesiti and Christian Thompson alongside established names like Marco Fusinato, Eugene Carchesio and collaborative duo David Haines and Joyce Hinterding. She has also included the work of Yukultji Napangati and Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula.

Lynn has chosen works that relate to sound, music and the voice. There are musical scores and assemblages built from musical instruments as well as drawings, paintings and video.

“While some artists respond to an avant garde tradition of experimental sound, others are interested in the ways in which music is a cultural expression,” explains Lynn. “For many of the artists sound or song is a means of communication.”

Many of the artists will be performing live with their works, with performances scheduled for the opening weekend over 4 and 5 August 2012.

The Tarrawarra Biennial then continues until 9 December 2012.
