Liverpool Biennial is the UK’s International Biennial of Contemporary Art and is the largest contemporary art festival in the UK.
For ten weeks every two years the city of Liverpool is host to an extraordinary range of projects and artworks. Artists make and present work in a vibrant and diverse range of public spaces, galleries, museums, and cultural spaces as well as in unexpected places, previously disused buildings, exciting locations and surprising spaces. The Biennial unfolds through an exciting exhibition of artworks and projects that leads to a rediscovery and reinvention of this important post-industrial city.
Now led by Sally Tallant, Artistic Director and CEO, the Biennial was originally conceived and founded in 1998 by James Moores (with Jane Rankin Read, Lewis Biggs and Bryan Biggs) and presented the first Liverpool Biennial in 1999.
The 8th edition runs from 5 July until 26 October 2014.
