The Biennial Effect: The impact of the art biennial on place-making. The Box, FarGo Village.
This symposium examines the impact of the art biennial on place-making. It asks, what makes a new biennial distinctive within the global cult of biennials? And is it enough for a biennial to be responsive, embedded and tailored to its locality? Organised in partnership with New Art West Midlands, this event will help shape Coventry’s future biennial offerings and celebrate some of region’s other biennial treasures. Featuring keynotes and panel discussions by academics and professionals from the region and nationally.
2pm – 5pm
Tickets cost £5. Please pay cash on arrival.
