quicko: 17th biennale

I had no idea, but it turns out Sydney is in the midst of its 17th biennale of contemporary art. I could have sworn you spelled it "biennial," too (and, incidentally, google spellcheck agrees with me ... though, oddly enough, it doesn't recognize either the word "google" or "spellcheck"), but perhaps that's all part of the art of it. I don't know. What can you expect from a girl who has nothing better to do than attempt to win the Blake prize with a liturgical physical interpretation of the Sydney Harbour Bridge?

I'm also more used to seeing "biennial".

According to Wikipedia it's Italian for "every other year" and is normally used to refer to Contemporary Art festivals held every other year. Perhaps the "biennial" spelling is more common with other festivals?
