Burrinja Climate Change Biennale 2015

The inaugural Burrinja Climate Change Biennale was presented from 3 October 2015 to 31 January 2016.

The exhibition presented 20 finalists from across Australia featuring diverse works including painting, print-making, photography, video, installation and performance art. The exhibition finalists were ADi Brierley, Ali Griffin, Ches Mills, Chris Lawry, Elaine Pullum, Eliza Phillips, Emma Jennings, Eva Glac, Gerard Russo, Hartmut Veit, Jasper Killick, Joel Zika, Joy Serwylo, Karly Michelle Whalley, Kiera Brew Kurec, Lisa Roberts, Max Kaluza, Selena de Carvalho, Shelley Krycer and Stephen Powell.

Mixed media artist Joy Serwylo was awarded the 2015 Burrinja Climate Change Biennale Acquisitive Award valued at $3000 for her work 'At this point of time, it appears that we have not yet established a plan B’.

Immersive and experiential in nature, the exhibition invited direct responses in-situ as well as online via social media. A program of on site art-making activities accompanied the exhibition. Over 2,000 visitors attended the exhibition.

The Burrinja Climate Change Biennale strives to provoke and track continued critical discussion and cultural conversation around climate change. By revisiting the theme via an acquisitive award exhibition every two years, Burrinja is looking forward to building a valuable historic archive of artists’ reflecting changing cultural responses to climate change.
