Abstract

The 15x15 project was selected for exhibition as part of the 2008 Biennale of Sydney: Revolutions - Forms That Turn. Billed as a celebration of the defiant spirit, the exhibition will brought together some of the most revolutionary artists the world has ever known alongside the shining stars of today.

The theme of the 16th Biennale, Revolutions – Forms That Turn, suggests the impulse to revolt, a desire for change, and seeing the world differently. Many works in this year’s exhibition will be participatory, encouraging people to step inside art and discover new ways of looking and thinking about life today. Movement is a strong feature – works turn, spin, go in reverse, mirror, make noise and even blow up.

The 16th Biennale of Sydney, Revolutions – Forms That Turn, took place from 18 June – 7 September 2008 with leading international curator and writer Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev as Artistic Director. It achieved record visitation of 436,150 and featured 175 artists from 42 countries, including 65 new art works, presented alongside some of the world’s most ground-breaking art from the avant-gardes of last century.
