The Battle for Waterloo

Today was the Redfern Biennale the clusterfck in the words of the organiser of street level art in an area most at risk from Sydney’s voracious developers and cap in hand state government. Over 40 artists made work to put out on the street counter to the gigantism of the Sydney Biennale.
