As previous representatives of Australia at the The 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009, Ken + Julia Yonetani’s art installations have attracted international acclaim and widespread attention to environmental and social issues. They have exhibited in such venues as the National Museum of Singapore (Singapore Biennale 2013), Art Gallery of NSW, GV Art London, NKV Wiesbaden Germany, Kone Foundation in Finland, 4a Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in Sydney, and Art Gallery of South Australia. They have undertaken residencies in Finland, Portugal, Germany, Japan, Mildura and Sydney, and have received numerous grants, including Creative Australia (New Work), Visual Arts New Work (established), NSW Arts Creation and Promotion Grant, NSW Artist Grant (NAVA), a Synapse Residency and an Inter-Arts Creative development residency grant.

They are having a large scale solo exhibition in France at L’abbaye de Maubuisson site d’art contemporain, Val d’Oise in late 2014. They were both born in Tokyo, Japan and grown in Japan and Australia. They are currently living and working in Australia, Japan and Europe.
