Titled Divided Worlds, the 2018 Adelaide Biennial presents an allegory of human society, one that meditates on the drama of the cosmos and evolution; on the past and the future; and on beauty and the environment.
Featuring artists from all corners of the country, Divided Worlds delivers new and unexpected visions in mediums such as photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image.
