Why Correggio Jones is not The Hero of the 2004 Biennale of Sydney

The title of the 2004 Sydney Biennale was Biennale Of Reason and Emotion, the curator was Isabel Carlos, a Portuguese woman who will stress her cultural links with the New World, but in her case it is South America rather than North. One of the ideas she wished to explore through the Biennale was the concept of south in a world dominated by the culture of the north. As she states  "what I really want is to create a Biennale that works on the borders of the perception and on artworks that change our way of seeing the world around us."
