Liverpool Biennial is a platform for research, commissioning and presenting international art, education and debate. Every two years, the Biennial Exhibition brings an international focus to our work. It is the moment when the world comes to Liverpool to engage with our thinking and when we present art to the world.
Liverpool Biennial 2014, The UK Biennial of Contemporary Art, takes place from 5 July to 26 October 2014.
The 8th Liverpool Biennial Exhibition, A Needle Walks into a Haystack, is curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman. It takes place across the city at venues including the former Trade Union Centre, the Bluecoat, FACT and Tate Liverpool. Also featured in Liverpool Biennial 2014 are the John Moores Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and exhibitions at Open Eye Gallery and LJMU’s Exhibition Research Centre. In addition, there will be work by artists and curators in solo and group shows and performances throughout the city.
Since it was founded in 1999 by James Moores, Liverpool Biennial has commissioned 231 new artworks from 364 artists around the world, including 34 collaborative neighbourhood projects in the city. From 2004-2012, Liverpool Biennial has had an economic impact of £98.9m.
