Walking Slowly Downhill
Artists: Domenico de Clario, Steven Rhall

Walking Slowly Downhill begins with the commencement of the walk at Mt Kosciusko on Sunday 13 September and, along with the new work that will be presented at the Biennale, continues online at www.mildurabiennale.com for the duration of the journey.

Weaving Stories (Murray River)
Artists: Alice Abdullah, Clair Bates, Jennifer Bates, Charlie Davis, Tina Doolan, Samantha Doolan, Jelina Haines, Anne McMahon, Glenda Nicholls, Major Moogy Sumner, Ellen Trevorrow, Debra Rankine, Bronwyn Razem

Weaving Stories (Murray River), is a major collaborative fibre art installation for the Biennale created by Indigenous weavers from many Murray River nations. Each of these distinct nations brings its own culture, stories and character into the project using a dynamic combination of materials from their regions and the wider world to create an interwoven installation of the living culture along the Murray River.
