The Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Inner Sanctum offers an encounter with artists, poets and makers interested in the human condition. The Biennial unfolds across exhibitions, performances and talks that explore our engagement with the world and each other. Here the idea of an inner sanctum illustrates the private or sacred spaces we create and the faculty of imagination that allows us to see culture and society differently.

Curated by José Da Silva, the 2024 Adelaide Biennial offers a snapshot of contemporary Australia that is reflective and hopeful. It provides a setting where art and poetry enliven the social imagination and help us understand the complexities of the human experience.
