Submit ideas for a new biennale

The proliferation of biennales and other perennial art events around the world reveal huge energy, creativity and social engagement within the sphere of contemporary art. These events are always more than the art they represent. So what do we want from our biennales and how do we get it?

We invite short presentations or video submissions as part of a debate at Tate Exchange (Tate Modern) on "Imagined Biennales." Selected submissions will be invited to present ideas as part of Tate Exchange on Sunday, May 13 and will be included in the forthcoming publication How to Biennale! The Manual

To apply: submit a one-page expression of interest to Professor Sunil Manghani outlining the main context and key ideas for a short 5-10 minute presentation.

All presentations should aim to prompt wide-ranging dialogue as part of the event.

Deadline: April 27, 2018

Further details:

Imagined Biennales (in collaboration with the Gujral Foundation) is part of Building an Art Biennale at Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, organised by Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.
