Lorne Sculpture Biennale

16 artists, 16 precincts, one iconic location #LSB2024

Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2024 will build on previous iterations to showcase a series of site-responsive artworks, commissioning established and emerging artists to explore how contemporary art can respond to, articulate, and augment our experience of place.

Drawing on the dramatic beauty and rich history of the Great Ocean Road, LSB2024’s artistic vision stems from the Lorne region’s iconic geology–its stratified ocean cliffs serve as an analogy for the fact that one place is many places, layered both physically and experientially through time, culture, and the subjectivity of humans and other forms of life.

Across 16 sites from 2 – 30 November 2024, the outdoor exhibition will present sculpture and spatial installation more broadly, encompassing sonic art, architectural environments, ephemeral installations, and landscape interventions, all uniquely capable of enabling complex and affective experiences of place. Themes to be explored include geology and ecology, Australia's First Peoples and early settlement, among various objective (geographic, scientific, material) and subjective (social, cultural, perceptual) aspects of each site and their interactions.

For many reasons, events may be cancelled, postponed or details changed. Please check the individual event's official website or social media channels for the latest information.


Surf Coast Shire Council Acknowledges the Wadawurrung People, and Gulidjan and Gadubanud Peoples of the Eastern Maar, their Elders and leaders past, present and emerging as the Traditional Owners of the skies, land, waters and sea country across our municipality. We acknowledge their care and custodianship for more than 60,000 years, which continues today. We walk with them as we respectfully care for and tread lightly on these lands. We also extend that respect to all First Nations people who are part of the community.
