About Fremantle Biennale

Running from 5–21 November 2021, the Fremantle Biennale is a biennial festival showcasing site-responsive contemporary art from established and emerging artists.

The renowned festival that brought you the yellow optical illusion artwork in the West End and cascading waves of blue light projected across the Esplanade is back with another incredible, largely-free program that celebrates Freo’s cultural, social and historical distinctiveness.

This year’s Fremantle Biennale—CROSSING 21—will invite audiences to the shores of the Swan River, with a focus of activity taking place between the two iconic Fremantle bridges.

For the first time, the festival will also see its headline work Moombaki presented in neighbouring councils Melville and Cockburn.

We spoke to three different artists participating in this year’s Fremantle Biennale about their artworks and what audiences can look forward to.
