A Day out at Cockatoo Island – 17th Biennale of Sydney

Over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, I spent the afternoon at Cockatoo Island, the major venue of the 17th Biennale of Sydney. Even before getting to the island,  the scenic ferry ride from Circular Quay across the Sydney Harbour to the island certainly raised the anticipation. Cockatoo Island was a very unique setting to experience contemporary art because its was also former prison and shipyard.  Many of these buildings and workshops’ content still remains.

Below are some of the photos I took on the island, while here is the link to the entire collection.
