International Selection Panel
Whilst previous Biennales have been the vision of one artistic director, the Biennale of Sydney 2000 has invited six of the world's leading art figures to come together.

International Selection Panel
"I think that when you bring together a group of people with very diverse backgrounds such as is the case with the International Selection Panel, you can have a much more interesting conversation, and hopefully that will be reflected in the experience of the visitor at the Biennale; that is to say that you get a much richer show."
Sir Nicholas Serota, International Selection Panel.
