'The fourteenth Biennale of Sydney, On Reason and Emotion, continues a long and esteemed tradition. Isabel Carlos (curator of the exhibition) presents an exhibition that brings togehter fifty-one artists from thirty-two countries and is distinguished by the number of new projects and new works. Her theme, On Reason and Emotion, captures the spirit of the moment and causes us to reflect on many levels of human endeavour. The proposition that feeling and thinking are not separate but one, and that it is through the seamless contribution of each that people reach their intelligence and ultimately their humanity, resonates strongly for today.' - extracted from preface by Paula Latos-Valier.

Images of works are accompanied by individual texts. Artist biographies are provided together with a section entitled Speakers Forum which includes summaries of lectures presented by curators, academics, art critics and cultural commentators.
