Biennale of Sydney 2010 explodes on Cockatoo Island
The 17th Biennale of Sydney launch party saw in excess of 2000 people land on the shores of Cockatoo Island  in the middle of Sydney Harbour.  Shuttled over by a collection of ferries on one very chilly night there was certainly nothing frosty about this huge party.

‘Exploding cars’, the installation by Cai Guo-Qiang, that’s  suspended from the ceiling of the massive ex ship building warehouse on Cockatoo Island loomed high above the huge crowd.   With   a rustic central table overflowing with serve yourself  bread, cheese, ham, fruits and nuts (great idea) the venue took on quite a unique feel. 

As the Chandon flowed the ecclectic art crowd, famous faces and ’who knows who everybody else was’  continued to grow and really warm up.  The relaxed partyers chatted, mingled, danced and generally had a great time.  The biggest party Sydney has seen for a while and one we wouldn’t have missed.

The Biennale of Sydney is now the third biggest in the world but it’s got to be the best – afterall what other country can boast a whole island, in the middle of the most magnificent harbour in the world, as one of it’s biennale venues.
