The World Biennial Forum
The World Biennial Forum is a gathering of biennial practitioners and appreciators to examine and discuss the foremost topics and concerns within international biennial making and contemporary arts.
The World Biennial Forum’s role is to signal primary concerns in biennial art environments, investigating and researching the various modes of operation and production in different regions, and offering insights into the current issues and needs surrounding art biennials worldwide.
The Forum’s practice is to work as a partnership, hosted first by the Gwangju Biennale in South Korea: World Biennial Forum No 1, ‘Shifting Gravity’, 2012. The World Biennial Forum No 2 will be organized in close collaboration with the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo and ICCo – Instituto de Cultura Contemporânea.
The World Biennial Forum No 2 is a 5-day event, scheduled to take place from November 26 – 30, 2014, during the exhibition period of the 31st Bienal de São Paulo.Read more
