Biennial

Our Biennials

Save the date

Our Biennials are always a combination of culture, art, sculpture and togetherness. Because of this we have hosted four great successful exhibitions with more planned on the way. Click below to see our plans for the Biennial 2021 or for a brief history on past Biennials.

Biennial 2021

Plan your visit to the Highlands around the Hillview Sculpture Biennial. Hillview brings together art, heritage, nature, food, and wine in one of the most fertile regions of NSW.

Don’t miss out

The 2021 biennial will be in a new format. It will purely be an indoor exhibition of small sculptures. It will still run for 1 month, it will still have significant recognition to outstanding works. It will still have (based on the past) sales that should be a beneficial experience for exhibitors and yet a wonderful new surprise for past and new visitors.

 

Plans are well afoot for our newly formatted, fifth biennial in May 2021. The turning point was in early 2019. We were fine tuning the parks layout and imminent installations when for obvious reasons a change was made. The park would be purely for large pieces and the biennial for small. An expansion on this concept will be short coming.

Biennial 2012 – 2018

We have had 4 successful exhibitions with more planned for the future, each showcasing incredible sculpture and art pieces

The history of our Biennial

Over the last 4 exhibitions we have each time exceeded our expectations – 100 percent increase in all key performance indicators. To say that Hillview Biennial has snowballed over the last 8 years is an understatement. This growth is generally consistent in all areas. In particular, the strength in the depth and quality has been outstanding.

Honey Fungus and Friends
MARGARITA SAMPSON
Honey Fungus and Friends is a site-specific soft sculpture installation that combines selected furniture from Hillview with textile elements and sculptural forms to create a dream-like scene of domestic disjuncture.

Gathering
PETER LUNDBERG
Man and nature have a constructive and destructive relationship, both kind and cruel. It is this embrace that is central to my work. From both civilization and nature, I take patterns and intertwine them.

Burning Down the House
JANE GILLINGS
It’s now becoming apparent that climate change affects every natural system on the planet, leading to more catastrophic climate events such as wildfires, drought and floods. We know what to do, so let’s work together and not burn down our house.
