There’s a strange hush over Sydney’s art world this morning, as everyone recovers from the official Opening Party of the Biennale last night. A couple of thousand people buzzed about the massive heritage industrial space at Technology Park, just behind Carriageworks in Everleigh. It seemed like every artist, every curator, gallerist, board member and their attendant glamour contingents were out in force in what was a massive people’s party of the arts. Ironically, not one artwork was on show – its as if the people themselves were the living installation. Oh, and the massively fabulous food, and music. The 19th Biennale is now officially launched – long live the Biennale!
