"Everyday" is the theme of this edition of the Biennale. Jonathan Watkins wrote, 'Emphasis here is placed on the significance of every day, and any day, not on the distance between now and arbitrary past and future dates in Western history. The fundamental proposition of this exhibiton arises out of current artistic practice. Selected works are characterised by efficacy and unpreciousness. They are unforced artistic statements, incidentally profound observations on the nature of our lives as lived every day... The curatorial challenge arises from the relativism of what is everyday, the differenes between what is familiar, common or ordinary within the diversity of cultures represented. The aim is to communicate the nature of every day and to be culturally specific, declaring differences without resorting to exoticism particularly in the presentation of non-Western art.'

Images of works are accompanied by individual texts. Artist biographies are also included. video artpaintinginstallationsculpturephotographyperennial exhibitiongroup exhibition
