Where will the Triennial take place?
Perth and regional centres, Western Australia (WA)
How can I take part?
Artists have been selected and confirmed.
Participate by pre-purchasing a work to support an artisan to present his work at IOTA21.
Be a patron in the traditional ‘Medici’ sense by directly supporting a specific artist or group of artists from a specific country to make, pack and send their work to Perth for the exhibition. Due to the COVID-19 impact both materials and freight costs have increased dramatically. Livelihoods have been lost. Contact us about who most urgently needs support.
If you would like to volunteer please use the contact form.
